Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield is on the cusp of an exciting new beginning.
The legendary rugby league figure joined the Leicester Tigers in 2021 as Defence Coach and helped them to the Premiership under the leadership of Steve Borthwick.
Now, he and Borthwick has been taken on by England Rugby Union replacing Eddie Jones who has previously been chased by Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves and is keen on a move to rugby league and even the NRL.
He had just appointed former Hull FC boss and Man of Steel Brett Hodgson as Defence Coach replacing former Leeds coaching candidate Anthony Seibold.
The former Brisbane Broncos and South Sydney Rabbitohs boss joined Manly Sea Eagles for the new season.
However, Hodgson has been let go by England as part of Borthwick’s revamp with Sinfield taking on his role for the Six Nations and moving forward.
He is not the only former rugby league man to lose his job in this revamp.
Jon Clarke has left his post according to the Daily Mail.
The “fitness guru” as they call him, has been part of the England set up since 2018. The strength and conditioning coach will no depart from the England set up.
Clarke debuted at Wigan Warriors in 1997 and played for London Broncos and Widnes Vikings but his best years came at Warrington Wolves from 2001-11 winning the Challenge Cup with them under Tony Smith.
Now the door is open for him to return to rugby league in a coaching role.
