Is he a greater Loose Forward/Captain than either Andy Farrell and/or Paul Sculthorpe?

Very good SL player but ###### on the International stage and doesnt have the fear or respect to frighten the Aussies that Scully or Faz had. I would put Faz and Scully infront of Sinfield by some distance

I would too but on Sky 3D the commentators were having him as the best player of SL era. Not having that

Definitely a better club captain and pivotal to Leeds success. I wouldn't say he's as good an individual player as Sculthorpe or Farrell, but he's perfect for the Leeds system.

Agreed!

Sinfield has been excellent for Leeds but isn't in the same class as Farrell or Sculthorpe who were excellent at international level too.

Better the Scully.

His impact and leadership is outstanding.

Faz was only in SL a short time, Sinfield must have been at the top for the last 10 years.

Best in SL I'd say.

Faz played in SL for a decade.

Really? wow that's a surprise, I thought he played about 4 or 5 years.

Still think Sinfield is the greater captain

I agree, greater captain and team leader - I'm not sure there have been many better to be honest. I still think both Sculthorpe and Faz were more talented individual players though.

Edited for accuracy - as I believe the Challenge Cup Final is also when it counts, and is where his record is a complete contrast.

Faz played in SL for a decade.

Faz carried Wigan for at least four years. Their decline began with his departure and only ended with the arrival of Noble. How vital Sinfield is to Leeds will be apparent when he retires if they haven't found a replacement, and they haven't yet.

I agree about Faz - but he carried them due to his individual talent rather than his leadership qualities. In contrast, I think Sinfield whilst an inferior individual player, manages to inspire those around him to performance levels they wouldn't otherwise achieve. All Faz did as a leader was instill fear into those around him that they would let him down, it was more intimidation than inspiration in my view.
