Not the 30 plus games thing again, I suspect you mean games against Australia as we've got a good record against other nations.
Sinfield ahs only played as captain once against Australia and in that game we have been the closest to beating them since 2006 and we didn't capitulate in the final twenty as we previously have. And the loss was nothing to do with the halves, our completion, penalty and error count was simply shocking, the fact we kept them within 8 points is a testament to how good a side England are
TBH it's all getting a bit tedious now (I'm sure my posts are too) it's clear that certain posters will never ever give a Sinfield any credit.
Sinfield played his role well on Saturday and IMO was the second best half on the pitch. His place kicking was very poor. Though.
Are we really going to have this same debate over and over again after every game?
Agreed on the tedious bit ( both of us) But no, I do mean in all of his rep games, whether captain or not Chris.
Unless you haven't noticed I am and have been stating that KS, on Saturday, played to the best of his ability, I concede that completely.
However where I do contest with your opinion is that he again played his part, he had no more influence than did others , yet admittedly, performed better than some.
That however does not contribute to the manner in which commentators and others like yourself are seemingly convinced that the has to team revolve around his every action, pass, or whatever else his overriding presence commands.
Sinfield played as well as he is able on Saturday and much in line with how at this level, one or two notable occasions apart, he has done throughout his international career.
Nothing sparkling and mostly insignificant overall!
That is why I object to the superstar accolades he continually receives.
Peacock, Sculthorpe, Farrell, all inspired by their own performances the others around them, albeit with limited success, especially V the Aussies.
But nontheless that they themselves where aspirational players and captains cannot be denied.
Kevin Sinfield in my eyes ( not only though?) does not possess such a quality at this level of R/L.
