Yorkshire Carnegie head coach Bryan Redpath said Kevin Sinfield has made an immediate impression at the club following his first full week of training with Yorkshire Carnegie.

Speaking at the club’s training ground Redpath said: “He’s gone really well.  He trained three days last week which was more about conditioning and core skills and with this being a game week it is obviously a bit different as there is theme of us playing against Bedford.  He has fitted in really well, he has so much to learn in some ways but last week we put him straight in and gave him a simple framework to work off and to execute that and I take my hat off to him he has come in and he has swallowed up a lot of information and used it.  He is training really well and ultimately he wants to put his hand up as quick as he can.”
