Brad Dwyer has become one of Leeds Rhinos’ most talismanic stars in recent seasons since making the move from the Warrington Wolves.
The wily hooker joined Leeds back in 2018, and has gone on to register 76 appearances along with 20 tries after debuting for Warrington back in 2012.
88 appearances later and Dwyer found himself on the periphery at the Halliwell Jones, but a move to Leeds has reignited his career.
And, the 28-year-old acknowledged just how good a season 2021 was for him.
“2021 personally was probably my best year so far,” Dwyer told Serious About Rugby League.
“I feel like I’ve been growing since coming to Leeds and been pretty consistent.
“I felt like I started the year really strong – especially me, Kruise (Leeming) and Richie (Myler) had to step up as we struggled to have a consistent halfback pairing.”
That being said, Dwyer did admit that tiredness got the better of him as the season wore on.
“I felt like I was having less impact on games towards the back end of the season due to fatigue having played every game and three Easter-like periods.
“But, overall I’m happy happy and looking to back that up next season seeing that we should hopefully have plenty of competition for places in all positions.”
Among that competition at halfback will be Luke Gale, Blake Austin and Aidan Sezer – a mouthwatering combination.
For Dwyer, moving to Leeds has played a major role in his happiness and form on the field.
“I’ve loved my time at Leeds – the move was massive for me not only on the field but off it as well.
“I’ve moved over and love living in the city and if I’m happy that normally helps me play my best rugby.”
