Kevin Sinfield applauds the fans as he receives a standing ovation

Kevin Sinfield has been inducted into the Leeds Rhinos Hall of Fame on his final day at the club.

The seven-time Grand Final-winning captain leaves his role as Rhinos’ director of rugby and will link up with the Leicester Tigers ahead of their 2022 campaign.

Sinfield, who was this year awarded an OBE was inducted into the Hall of Fame 27 years to the day that he first signed a contract at Leeds – as a 13-year old junior.

He leaves as the club’s highest goals and points scorer having scored 3443 points for the Rhinos between 1997-2015.

“I feel really humbled to be in there amongst some of the greats of the club from the last 130 years – it is really special.

“I think the club does a wonderful job of celebrating past players and to join that list today was a big surprise.

“To be in that room today with some of our 2011 grand final winning team is what it is all about. Those friendships and memories, its really nice to reminisce over.

“I am adamant that I am still going to be a part of the game. I am still helping to coach Saddleworth Rangers u16’s.

“My son is on the scholarship programme and all being well he will go on and play in the academy so any way I can still help the sport I will.”
