7723 you actually started your argument fairly well, but there isn't any need for petulant name calling ect.
My point of view on Sinfield will always be as it has been. He isn't a bad player as people make him out to be, he's been in the top bracket of SL players for the best part of a decade now and has a pivotal role in the Leeds side. He has the sufficient attriubutes required at SL level to do an affective job and also guide Leeds round the park and captain the side and lead them to success.
But international level is just a step up in which his ability of being an RL player cannot make. He is to slow, his disribution out wide is to slow, his creativity isn't the best and it's now fairly debatable that his kicking game isn't the best this country has to offer. His organisation is exceptional yes, but we have countless number of players who are more than capable of doing this. The fact he hasn't been anywhere near the top of the albert goldthorpe medal table, super league dream team or man of steel for a while now suggests that his form is not even that good at SL level. I can't see how you can argue his form since 2011 has earned him a place in the squad because quite frankly it hasn't. A couple of exceptional performances at the end of the 2012 season do not make up for 2 years of average. I also don't take the argument that he will be better if he plays for England the same role he plays for Leeds because I don't think organisation can cover up obvious flaws in his attacking play. 3 - 4 decent performances in 30 RL games also suggests he doesn't have the ability to step it up. One thing I will credit Sinfield with is not going missing when his team are struggling (Brough is common for this, although he didn't against Wire in the playoffs) Sinfield will always carry on as he is and try to get his team on the front foot, regardless if his efforts are good enough.
Farrell and Ablett are so lucky to be ahead of Kirmond. Kirmond has been the best second rower this season by some distance and I think the reason he hasn't been picked is because he hasn't been wearing one of the shirts of the former two players.
I'd of had Ratchford is for versatility and not picked Tom Briscoe. Briscoe has done absolutely nothing to suggest he should be in the side. I don't agree with dropping Hardaker for him because Hardaker is a brilliant back up for Tomkins.
Lunt is unlucky as he's been the best hooker in the country for the last 18 months. None of the hookers selected ahead of him have showed no reason why they should of been.
Crabtree behind T Burgess is controversial but I can understand why it was done.
Smith is unlucky and should be ahead of Sinfield.
Apart from that I believe most have earned there place in the squad.
