Leeds Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield has signed a new four-year contract keeping him at the club until 2014. This means the 30-year-old Great Britain international will spend his whole career at Headingley.
Sinfield told BBC Radio Leeds: (quote) The club has always been loyal to guys that have come through the system and it is really nice to be rewarded. I never wanted to go anywhere else, and I feel lucky I have been able to play my whole career here. The club is as good as it gets. People make a club, and the people and environment at this place is fantastic and you do not want to go anywhere else. The friends I have got here, the culture that’s been created, the success we’ve had and the way people want to take this club forward and continue to challenge for silverware is something I really want to be a part of. (end quote)
As he begins his 15th season at Headingley, Sinfield is already assured of his place in Rhinos history. He has led them to four Championships and has captained them in 12 finals, including four Grand Finals and two World Club Challenge victories.
