Aidan Sezer will be a Leeds Rhinos player in 2022 after signing a two-year deal.
The elusive halfback joins from the Huddersfield Giants, where he narrowly missed out on the Man of Steel award back in 2020.
A more frustrating 2021 Super League season saw Sezer tormented by injury yet the former Canberra Raiders half still managed 24 appearances in two seasons, scoring nine tries, kicking 61 goals as well as two drop-goals and he will be integral in how the Rhinos tick in 2022.
That, coupled with Luke Gale’s departure to Hull FC, has left the pressure on both new recruits Blake Austin and Sezer to perform even greater, but the Aussie duo will certainly be the difference between winning a trophy and not for the West Yorkshire club.
For Sezer, he cannot wait to get started.
“I’m keen as; I’m humbled to be here,” Sezer told Rhinos TV.
“It’s special to be a part of this club.
“I’ve been in and round the boys to do some work and look at the gear – it’s impressive.
“When I first signed here you could see the quality of the squad and I’m looking forward to being a part of that and bringing my own strengths.”
Whilst injury plagued his last season at the John Smith’s Stadium, Sezer was keen to stress that problem was no longer an issue.
“I’m fully fit, the ankle is coming along really well.
“I’ve been ticking boxes over the break and hopefully there won’t be any interruptions.”
