Sinfield unsure over Bennett’s England plan

Kevin Sinfield says he will be disappointed if Wayne Bennett selects several Australia-born players for England.

Sinfield has taken a role with the RFL and with the national team.

“I’ve got one hat saying Wayne can pick who he wants but, having been a former England international, I would probably be disappointed if we pushed it too far,” Sinfield told AAP.

“It’s a difficult one but the decisions made so far have been for the right reasons.

“I’ve played with Chris Heighington, Maurie Fa’asavalu and Rangi Chase and every one of those players have wanted to put the jersey on.

“What I would say is that our competition is very strong and I’d like to think the group would be picked from our core base of players in the UK and our NRL players who have already played.”
