Congratulations Sir Kev!

Great to see that Kevin Sinfield’s immense leadership skills are finally being recognised on the international stage with today’s announcement that he succeeds Leeds Rhinos clubmate Jamie Peacock as England captain for the forthcoming internationals against Wales and France.

The job could not be in better hands than those of the ultimate professional and hopefully he can go well beyond this autumn and lead us in a successful campaign for the Rugby League World Cup in 2013.
