Aidan Sezer on why he signed for Leeds Rhinos, relationship with Richard Agar and his future beyond current contract

Aidan Sezer became one of Leeds Rhinos’ most notable signings when he made the off-season switch from the Huddersfield Giants.

Having been at the John Smith’s Stadium for two seasons, the switch to Headingley was one which the Australian could not turn down.

“You don’t need to sell the club , everyone knows what Leeds Rhinos are about and what the club stands for,” Sezer said.

“As a player being given the opportunity to join the club was too good to turn down.

“It’s been good so far, it’s been a smooth transition – there are a few new faces involved alongside myself, so the squad has had numerous changes and I’m loving it so far.

Sezer also could not hold back his excitement at working under Leeds boss Richard Agar who, the halfback feels, shares the same philosophies.

“One thing that drew me to the club was how he (Agar) sees the game and I think that aligns with how I see the game.

“It’s always easy being on the same page as the coach so hopefully we can transition that into smooth performances.”

The former Huddersfield Giants star signed a two-year deal at Headingley, but he is keen to play with the club beyond that if possible.

“I’m loving my time at the club, I’ve signed up for two years but hopefully it will be longer.”

Sezer will strike up a halfback partnership with former teammate at the Canberra Raiders, Blake Austin, with other new signings David Fusitu’a and James Bentley expected to have big years.
