Kevin Sinfield: Does not feel he will get an opportunity to play rugby union

Sky Sports gave you the chance to fire questions to Kevin Sinfield on Twitter and here are the responses from the Leeds Rhinos captain.

The Oldham-born 32-year-old has helped the Rhinos to six victories in Grand Finals at Old Trafford and explains why he chose Leeds as a teenager.

The Headingley legend reveals the toughest player he has played against while also confirming he would have liked to have tried his hand at rugby union.

@NeilTurnbull_ #AskSinfield would you ever consider switching codes and if so, do you plan on doing it?

Kevin: Yes, I don't think I will get the opportunity now but I have certainly thought about it - it's appealing, I'm a big fan of union.

@cubby1976 is it true a couple of years ago you nearly joined Warrington wolves? #AskSinfield

Kevin: No, that is definitely not true.

@ppalf29 who is the toughest player you have played against? #AskSinfield

Kevin: There's a few. Rugby league's a tough game. I will say one of my team-mates though - Jamie Peacock, thankfully he is on my team now.

@Jharro10 what goes through your head as your preparing to kick #AskSinfield

Kevin: I try and clear everything out and imagine it is just another practice kick; you can't let the tension build in the pressure kicks.

@benjhamer What's been your greatest moment as captain of Leeds #AskSinfield

Kevin: There have been a few. It's a close one between the first Grand Final in 2004 and the Grand Final in 2012.

@Terry_Burdon What career path will you follow after your playing career is over? #AskSinfield btw thanks for the memories #legend

Kevin: I'm currently studying a masters in sports business, so maybe administration. Possibly a role with Sky Sports too - we'll have to see

@rickyflanagan #AskSinfield which if any team do you see surprising everyone or can you see it being the usual few in the chase for the GF

Kevin: Widnes may surprise on the back of what Denis Betts is doing and they have signed Gareth Hock. They are in for a good year.

@HadynLee Is there a scientific reason why you train so early in the morning? #AskSinfield

Kevin: No, it's just to miss the traffic!

@Benit13eight91 Being From Oldham, what made you choose the Rhinos over more local teams such as Wigan, Salford etc? #AskSinfield

Kevin: I was a ball-boy there; but they didn't want to sign local lads. It was a choice between Wigan/Warrington/Leeds, I went with my gut.

@Dannie123Dannie #AskSinfield What is Brian Mcdermott like to work with?

Kevin: He's the best coach I've ever played under. I've played under some brilliant coaches but at this stage of my career, he's just perfect

@Moorhouse97 What Would Kevin Consider His Greatest Achievement During His Rugby League Career? #AskSinfield

Kevin: Captaining England - the Golden boot was a huge honour but captaining your country surpasses everything.
