Smith captained the Storm to GF glory - a game the Storm were favourites to win.
Sinfield captained the Rhinos to GF glory - a game that Warrington were favourites to win.
Smith captained Queensland to Origin glory - a series where Queensland were favourites to win.
Sinfield captained the Rhinos to WCC glory - a game where Manly were favourites to win.
Both captained their country to victories in matches they were favourites to win.
Actually Bulldogs were favorites considering they were the Minor Premiers,
Cameron Smith had alot of pressure on him from the media and all of Queensland frankly due to taking the captaincy from the great Darren Lockyer which i'll also add to his resume and passed with flying colors.
WCC means nothing as the NRL clubs play that game during their preseasons when the players aren't in match fitness and haven't had a chance to gel as a team yet, the game isn't taking that seriously in Australia as it gets zero media coverage don't forget the ridiculous 24 hour trip to even play the game, play the game during both the NRL & Superleague season on Neutral territory and we'll talk.
You conveniently left out Smith Captaining Australia to not one but two wins over New Zealand.
Smith lead his team to 2nd on the table out of 16 teams, Sinfield took Leeds to 5th out of 14 teams and was generally inconsistent throughout the whole season which Smith wasn't.
Sinfield failed in the Cup Final, Smith however didn't fail on any big occasion this season including The Grand Final, Origin and the test matches against New Zealand.
By the way this isn't who's the best captain award, it's the best player in the world and considering Sinfield didn't even win Leeds player of the year award he is not the best in the world a fact that most Englishmen on this forum have even admitted.
Smith is the best Hooker in the world, Sinfield isn't even the best Half in the world.
For me Smith wins!
