Who better to sell Leeds Rhinos to potential new signings/sponsors/investors than Mr Leeds Rhinos himself?

There is no bigger name than Kev. He is perfect for the club.
YEAH LIKE WHATEVER!
TEAM UP! TEAM UP!

It's may be coincidence but I note there hasn't been anything in any of the club's press releases which mention Sinfield since the departure of Eastmond, so coming up to a month now.

It would be a very poor time for Sinfield to be trying to leave, right in the middle of the recruitment season for next year. Any time other than May/June/July would be better but right now, if true, it's very unhelpful for 2022 planning.

Overall though I stand by the point that, in this role, Sinfield would not be a particularly catastrophic loss.

It would depend on when he actually goes - it might just be an agreement to join Leicester after season end or something, who knows.

I haven't personally agreed with a few of our recruitment decisions under Kev/Agar, but I do think the club in general is looking much more like it now and they've done a great job turning it all around and pointing in the right direction.

In terms of future successes, well it's partly good management of course but there's some luck in there too. When the Goldens came through we just happened to have a wave of close-to-international-class players develop at the same time. We might be seeing something similar now or we might not - but the availability of the raw talent is never in the club's control. It can only work with what it can find.

I really don't know enough about it other than that but I hope Kev stays with the club in some capacity. I have no doubt there will be personalities in the background: the Kev/Agar/Hetherington mix. Strong opinions in there and it's never easy to blend.

Think Kev would make a damn good Chief Exec at Leeds.. it'd be a big blow to lose him out of the organisation.

Can I ask what's that based on?

Gary isnt going anywhere despite his age so CEO would never be in the equation.

We will have to see what happens but Kevin has to do whats best for him and his family. End of the day its a job and if better opportunities come up we would all take them up. Truth is ive no idea if an offer is on the table at all but there is no denial either.

Should people have to deny things that don't exist? There could be an offer on the table, but Kev doesn't seem the type to respond to media or message board speculation.
It's not how much talent you've got, it's what you do with it that counts.

We’ve agreed on something, I’ll open the champagne… :lol:

Steady on let's not get harmonious.

Don't think anyone would begrudge Kev leaving BUT it's a bitter pill when the British game is so weak that any real assets are cherry-picked by NRL or RU.

On the other hand, maybe Kev feels that the admin role isn't really for him and he fancies getting his boots on more - he's often on the training ground at Leeds anyway.

Just my opinion of him. Brilliant leader. Consummate professional, driven. I’m sure also I read a bit back GH said he thought Kev was his natural successor.
