Aidan Sezer “frustrated” after Hull KR defeat which saw him yellow carded

Yesterday was not the result Leeds Rhinos would have wanted going into Round One as they lost 26-4 and making matters worse, halfback Aidan Sezer could face a ban for a head high tackle on Lachlan Coote which yielded a yellow card.

This no doubt added to his frustrations as he branded the game as a whole “really frustrating” after the match when speaking to the Rhinos’ YouTube channel.

“I think it was really frustrating, we didn’t hold the ball,” the former Huddersfield Giants man said.

“I think the way we want to play, you still need to be disciplined and defend our way to a win and we didn’t. We were conceding easy meters and we spoke about that before the game so it was disappointing.

“We need to be better and get ready for Round One.”

When asked if this focuses the preparation for their Round One clash with Warrington Wolves, he said:

“Yeah for sure, it is a tough competition and we need to turn up every week and we need to prepare.

“Hull KR were good today and deserved that scoreline but we needed to be better than today in a lot of areas.”

In terms of the yellow card, Sezer didn’t comment but his coach Rohan Smith did.

Smith questioned the decision as well as the decision to sin bin Hull KR’s Elliot Minchella in the first half for a tackle on Richie Myler.

He said: “It would be good if someone from the RFL told me what I was allowed to comment on but Lachlan Coote, you could see the divot where he slipped over. Everyone today seemed to slip when they changed direction.

“He is probably less than half is normal height when his head hits Aidan’s arm.

“Not only was it a complete accident, he apologised and there is a whole keep and carry on, if that is what our game has come to that there’s going to be a push and shove over that kind of high tackle, then I don’t know.

“It is a practice game, so is that a sin bin? I haven’t looked at the tackle on Richie Myler but he said he was fine. What are we doing putting people in the bin for them if they’re not like legit, in a practice game in particular.
