It is to be hoped that Sinfield's career is to be judged as a portfolio of contributive skill sets rather than just a number of numbers.

I think he is a pretty good player capable of turning a game on his day. But I totally agree with those that suggest it makes a mockery of the MOS to have some one on the short list who has missed knocking on for half the season. The fact that he has made the 3 makes me wonder if it is his "turn".

It always surprises me the number of people in RL who judge a player by a certain set of skills decided by the number on his back rather than what they contribute to the team.


Squad numbers are confusing for the elderly.

Good tackler (usually around the head)

The best in the league at laying on or flopping on top of the third man in the tackle.

A reasonable pivot between forwards and backs

A vital player for Wigan though and has improved with age

By classic "13" are some posters thinking of some sort of Steve Norton type ball handler extraordinaire? Is the classic "6" like an injury proof Tony Myler?

For me the best 13s I've seen are Hanley and Pearce, neither great ball handlers, and the best 6s I've seen are Lewis and Lockyer.

Whe I first noticed him he was getting penalised heavily for high tackles,but since Wigan started to improve around 2010 he looks a player that Wigan need.Good player,but if he comes above Peacock in MOS I don't think a Leeds player will ever get the award and I will ignore it in future
Soon we will be dancing the Fandango

Lol, he's done that plenty of times for Wigan.

I think he's a good aggressive defender with no great pace that any other backrower doesn't have. There's a few in Oz that are streets ahead of him like Gallen, Lewis, Bird and Stewart. Probably the best 13 in our comp but I won't gush about him because the competition isn't that stiff.
