It seems to be a cumulative recognition for Sinfield, who has been very good (as opposed to excellent, imo) for a number of years. I don't think he's done any more this year than the last seven or eight.

He certainly deserves some recognition, but I'm not sure this is the right thing (when you consider the likes of Thurstan not making the list).

Hey ho. It is stuff like this that makes sport fun.

He captained his team to 5th place


No he captained his team to a sixth Championship win.

He deserves the GB just as much as anyone else on the list IMO and I've got a feeling he may just get it, I also get the feeling if he had a high rising terminal in his accent, nobody would question his inclusion in the list.

nonsense about the aussie accent.

He wasnt his teams best player, he wasnt in the dream team, he wasnt in the World xiii. My personal view is that if he was the worlds best this year, then he would have achieved all three of those things.

If the number of tedious press releases reposted verbatim on here has a weighting in this, Sinfield will walk the award*.



*to the centre of the brand-new £1 million Headingley pitch.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Billy Slater full back in the World XIII but Tomkins and Barba up for Golden Boot!

Always good talking points around this stuff to keep us occupied in the closed season.

When the judges deliberate, I hope they watch footage of Tomkins laughable attempts to field a high ball under pressure and nmake their decisions accordingly.

Why are you making your own argument up, comment on what I said if you are going to quote me, because I suggested nothing of the sort.

I believe the Cup semi final was a star turn.

Sinfield is a good captain and a great kicker he is not the best stand off in the country or the best loose forward you cannot argue with his achievements and he deserves to be on the short list for that alone I do not think he will win it

Not his best game granted, but of the 7 tries Leeds scored that day only one was down to Tomkins' failure to take a high ball, and that was from a superb Sinfield kick which Hall scored from in the 4th minute. Hardly laughable.

By your standards then we should rule out Hall (destroyed by a Charnley hat trick in the league match at Wigan) and Sinfield (not for the first time poor kicking in the Challenge Cup final).

Hall wasn't nominated.

I also hope they watch Slater in the grand final and in SOO. One of Slaters was worse than Tomkins, people seem to go a out slating Tomkins and fail to realise Slater has had some shockers.

Most fullbacks have plenty of mistakes in them. It's a high pressure position, it happens - we have seen all of the best make mistakes at 1.
