Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield’s son Jack made his debut for the Rhinos in 2022 on Easter Monday and made a further few appearances for the Rhinos.
But what does 2023 hold for young Sinfield, that was put to Head Coach Rohan Smith who said:
“That will be up to Jack’s performances and the way he goes. He’s still a young man, he’s got a very mature head on his shoulders and he has experienced players in Aidan Sezer, Blake Austin and Richie Myler in front of him.
“He understands he’s on a journey and he is improving but there’s no set plan. It will be down to how he plays and what the team plays.”
Sinfield is not in the squad for Leeds’ Boxing Day friendly against Wakefield Trinity with Morgan Gannon and Richie Myler in the halves instead.
He announced himself on Boxing Day last year.
Smith meanwhile spoke about his father Kevin after his appointment as England Rugby Union Defence Coach:
“All I can say he is a phenomenal human being to do what he does, for other people he sacrifices his time and his body.
“I can take inspiration from what he does. I am not a follower of rugby union, I don’t know or understand his roles he has had so I couldn’t comment on that.
“But to get into that camp shows it, he has a great knowledge for rugby league and now for rugby union, someone with that character and way of living.”
