I always thought that Sinfield was over rated as a player, he was made to look better by the good players around him his place kicking was his best asset
Im a bit on the fence on Sinfield

I agree on ability he was overrated - he was a decent kicker but was too slow to be a half back and too small to be in the pack

one thing you cant take away from him he was a game manager of which there are few of now. For example had he been playing for us against wire you can bet you bottom dollar he'd of popped a drop goal over. When you think back to the likes of Sinfield,Long and Briers very few players do that side anymore it seems to be more about trying to score as many as possible rather than managing the game

JUST saw this, from Monday's Guardian online:
The resignation of Kevin Sinfield, the head of the England performance unit, was announced shortly after Wane’s appointment. According to the RFL, Sinfield, who was also their rugby director, stood down “to allow the RFL to follow a new direction as the national teams prepare for the 2021 World Cup”.
