Jack Sinfield reflects on his debut, which Leeds Rhinos star has helped him the most and how he can improve the side

Looking down the Leeds Rhinos teamsheet for their clash against Castleford Tigers and there was one name which stood out.

It was that of Jack Sinfield – son of Leeds legend Kevin.

At just 17 years of age, the halfback made his debut alongside Blake Austin who was taken off with a head injury early on in the game.

But, for Sinfield, the whole day and game were ‘a dream come true’.

“I was really nervous,” Sinfield said on Sky Sports after the game.

“I didn’t know I was going to play against a full team of men, but as soon as I started I felt alright.

“The lads were great with me and made sure I was alright.

“Hopefully I will keep learning and hopefully build a bit of stability in the halves, but I’m loving my rugby at the moment.”

Sinfield revealed that Austin himself has been a key part of his learning so far in the first-team.

“I felt more confident as the game went on,” Sinfield continued on the Leeds Rhinos Youtube channel.

“Hopefully, I can get more minutes under my belt but it was a dream come true.

‘Blake has been great with me, he has really helped me and looked after me.

“It’s not ideal losing him but I think we managed.”
