Where in my post do I say that it isn't?

 

You didn't, where in my post did I say that you did.

 

Its his best position, others are filling in the blanks.

Cameron Smith isn't that quick but is regarded by many as the best hooker to have played the game


He's not super quick like an Isaac Luke or a Daryl Clark but he is fairly quick to an extent. Smith is always a couple of seconds ahead of everyone else aswell which makes him able to make those extra metres. I'd class Sinfield as slow but Smith as just slightly above average pace. You don't need to be rapid to play international RL but you cannot be slow as you'll get found out in most positions.

God not this again.
Sinfield has played international rugby league for close to 15 years, under several different coaches. Either they are all corrupt or he's a pretty decent player. But no, 'pundits' on here know far better, don't they? Last year he won the Golden Boot as the world's best player. Again, the people who voted for him don't know as much as the trolls on here.
What is it about this country that causes us to take our sporting heroes and prefer to try and knock them off their pedestals rather than be grateful for their contribution?

Simple, he plays for Rhinos so no chance he will get credit from others. There's a reason he got golden boot, a reason why he's won so much at Rhinos and that he got made England captain. He is a brilliant player and leader, though I wouldnt start him hooker but would definitely have him in the halves with Widdop.

He's a great player, he has great skill.

 

His best position is hooker.

...with Tomkins and Widdop in the halves and Hardaker at fullback.

I'm looking forward to the 4N already! C'mon England!
