Kevin Sinfield has announced that he will retire from professional rugby at the end of the current rugby union season.
The former Leeds Rhinos and England rugby league captain switched codes to Yorkshire Carnegie in November 2015 and has helped his new team reach the British & Irish Cup Final and the end of season play offs.
Sinfield ended his Rugby League career last October leading Leeds Rhinos to the treble in his final game for the club at Old Trafford.
Sinfield’s services to Rugby League were recognised in 2014 when he was awarded a MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours and he fulfilled a long held ambition to finally lead the Rhinos to glory in the Challenge Cup.
In 2012 he became the leading points scorer in the club’s history and finished his career third in the all time list of points scorers in the history of Rugby League.
