'Sir' Kevin Sinfield

Well done to him.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Another World Club Challenge, Leeds points record, another Grand Final, England captaincy and now the Golden Boot. That's quite a year. Who needs the honours system?

Bit ludicrous really, but LPL sell papers in the UK, not Australia. Well done Kevin.

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.

That seems very wrong to me - more like an accumulative award for many great years, rather than being the best this year. But hey ho, each to their own.
And well done Kevin :-)

Do you know what the Judges names are this year?
I can not see them mentioned anywhere at all on the net, is it a Secret or something?

Congratulations Kevin.

Brillant!

There wasn't a player anywhere matched your outstanding performance this year.

So - of all the major awards he was eligible for this year:

Leeds Player of the year - nope (Ryan Hall)
SL Dream Team 6 or 13 - nope (Finch and O'Loughlin)
Man of Steel - Nope (not even shortlisted)
World XIII 6 or 13 - Nope (Thurston and Gallen)

Golden Boot - best player in the world - YEP!!!

Madness.

I do need to caveat that this is nothing to do with disliking Leeds (I feel quite the opposite), thinking all the NRL players are better, or being bitter about him playing a blinder in the Grand Final - simply that I don't think he has been anywhere near the best player in the World this year, and neither do the panels of the other major awards that I quoted.

FWIW - I don't always agree with who gets the award - isn't that the interesting thing about these - but I would absolutely like to congratulate him on the award.

You have to buy RLW to find out - as you will if you want to find out the breakdown of the voting I assume. Hmmm....
SQL Honours
Play off mini league winner - 2002. Bronze Medalist - 2003. Big Split Group Winner - 2006. Minor Stupidship - 2005, 2006. Cup Silver Medalist - 2008, 2009
CHAMPION - 2005, 2009, 2010

Garry Schofield said if Sinfield didn't win he'd do a naked run around LPL towers.
