Kevin Sinfield: I want to play on until 2016

Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield says he won’t retire until at least the end of 2016, at which point he will have played in 20 different seasons for the Rhinos.

But the 33-year-old realises his body could make the decision for him sooner than he plans.

“In an ideal world I would love to do another two years,” Sinfield told the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“It would be an honour to play for 20 years at this club, but we will see.

“It is not set in stone, if I feel at the end of next year it might be time, then I’ll think again.

“If at the end of two years I am feeling great, then I will try and go again, but if I can do another two that will be really special.

“I signed in August, 1994, so I have already had a decent stint here.

“Because I am not from Leeds people think the club does not mean as much as to people who were born and bred there.

“But I have been there a long, long time and they are responsible for what I am.”
