Sinfield is consistant and so are many leeds players but at the end of the day he is not the best player in super over a year if it was over a decade or 5 years then i would agree with you but it is the consistantcy of him that makes him outstanding. That is the same about many of your players
how sinfield gets over looked yet again is a joke!! ablett has also out played westwood all season!! hense why he got called upto england squad not westwood
Strange how Rhino's fans are suggesting that McGuire's ban has been influenced by Wigan, when it is arguably Wigan's best player this season (McLorum) who has been banned (and rightly so) for all the games during the playoff's.
#4 ‘2 forwards and one poncey back’!Do you watch RL? There are now only 4 specialist positions; dummy half, specialist playmaker/kicker (of which there are at least two sometime three in a team), wing and full back. The differential between forwards and backs ended years ago and IMO the sport is much poorer for it. Tomkins for MOS incidenatlly.
PeteH - yeah because Thaler has not piggy back leeds to a challenge cup final and semi final this year. Dont forget McIlorum is banded for the final aswell. Wat is would say is Super League is ridiculously inconcistant on these matters
Lol was I right about the pathetic Super RL Committee Wigan Board making sure another threat ie McGuire is banned lol One rule for Wigan or Saints another for Rhinos It stinks
Good luck to superben I think a nomination has been a long time coming and he has deserved this !!! If any of these three win it I don't think many RL fans would argue.
Tomkins is a very skillful player. It's questionable whether full-back is his best position. I occasionally go to watch Wigan play some of the better SL teams. I often see Tomkins drop high "bombs" and make other "silly" defensive errors, for example in Wigan's last game of the season against Saints. I therefore do not believe Tomkins should be Man of Steel. Roby and Westwood are good candid.
i'm sure there are loads of players that have scored more than mcguire lol, Boston scored over 400 for wigan. You lad isnt even half way there.
Lol Look at Super League and of course Bevan scored more He died in 1991 sadly but in Super League if you are in the modern age it's a Rhino His name is Mcgiure and I bet the Wigan committee will give him a one match ban to help there own team out this Friday
This comment was removed because it broke the house rules. Explain
Peter H - really showing your RL knowlegde there, do you really think McGuire is the all time leading try scorer? Or do you think RL started in 1996??
PeteH: Whilst I agree that Burrow, McGuire and Sinfield are great players, the MOS award is based on form during the current season only. Like last season, Leeds had key players missing for much of it and as a team lacked consistency throughout. Thats why they finished fifth and have no nominations in the shortlist.
I'd have gone for Richard Silverwood, he's been outstanding for Leeds this season.
Other than being a gifted and dedicated player, Sam Tomkins has had to face the wrath of both opposing players and fans who have gone out of their way to distract and intimidate him, but to no avail - he's thrived on it and come through to show what a great and resillient player he is, only great players can use things like this to their benefit.
Watch out Wigan Bad Call Rhinos are up for it Friday because they will be the Team of Steel
All I ask is for fairness as the three nominated are good players but when can anyone remember a Rhino being nominated and tell me why -super league is the best and no one can tell me that Burrow is not right up there
Never a Rhino lol Burrows the best and deserved man of steel but he's not a Wigan player and McGuire leading all time try scorer lol lot Sinfield all time points lol c'mon is this bias Mr Clark or not so can someone explain to me why Rhinos the best most consistent team over the last five years nevertheless never get applause from self anointed guardians of super league Stevo and Clark get real
Bit predictable. Tomkins is the better player, but Roby coming back changed coincided with Saints improving early on. I'd have gone for Gaz Hock myself.
