Brian Noble: Hull FC's Leon Pryce an unbelievable tryscorer
Hull FC half-back Leon Pryce has a try-scoring record that would be the envy of any player, according to former Great Britain boss Brian Noble.
The 33-year-old's two tries in the Black and Whites' defeat by Leeds last week took his career tally to 200.
Pryce was most prolific at Bradford, where he won Super League and World Club Challenge titles under Noble.
"It is unbelievable for any player of any era and any time," Noble told BBC's Super League Show.
|Leon Pryce vintage tryscorer|
|Bradford Bulls 1998-2006: 94 tries||St Helens 2006-11: 73 tries|
|Catalan Dragons 2012-14: 20 tries||Hull FC 2015-current: Two tries|
|England/Great Britain: Eight tries||Yorkshire: Three tries|
"Two hundred tries, that is a fair achievement. I think I played about 900 games and scored about three."
For Pryce, opening his try-scoring account for Hull FC and reaching the personal milestone was soured by defeat, as the Rhinos ran in 43 unanswered second-half points to triumph at the KC Stadium.
"I'd have swapped the two tries to get the victory on the night," said Pryce.
"It was a good feeling at half time to notch two up, but it didn't feel too great after the game."
|Britain's all-time top tryscorers|
|796: Brian Bevan (Warrington, Blackpool Borough) - 1945 to 1964||571: Billy Boston (Wigan, Blackpool Borough) 1953 to 1970|
|481: Martin Offiah (Widnes, Wigan, London Broncos, Salford City Reds, East Suburbs, St George) 1987 to 2001||446: Alf Ellaby (St Helens, Wigan) 1926 to 1939|
The loss was the Black and Whites' third straight and leaves them third-from-bottom on points difference alone.
Former Bradford, St Helens and Catalans man Pryce said the run of losses is not a true reflection his side, nor does it illustrate how well he has settled alongside half-back Marc Sneyd at Hull FC.
"Its going very well, even if the results don't show that," said Pryce.
"But I feel as though we have a good solid team. We came up against a good Leeds side and just lost against Warrington.
"Sooner or later we have to make sure we get the wins; it doesn't matter how well we perform - we need to pick those points up."
