‘In both cases we’ve had some ups and downs’ – Leeds Rhinos boss Richard Agar speaks on Brad Dwyer and Liam Sutcliffe ahead of their major milestones

Two of Leeds Rhinos’ most dedicated players will be playing in major milestone games against Wakefield Trinity tonight.

Brad Dwyer, who will be celebrating his 100th career game, and Liam Sutcliffe, who will be celebrating his 250th, have become part of the furniture at Headingley, with both playing a major part in Leeds’ Super League seasons in recent years.

For head coach Richard Agar, he was full of praise as well as banter regarding the duo.

“In both cases we’ve had some ups and downs,” Agar said.

“Liam was playing second-row when I came – he wasn’t really sure if his future lied in the forwards and he contemplated leaving the club.

“We let him know that we didn’t want him to leave and we wanted to get a smile back on his face.

“I think Liam has been terrific in my time at the club – he’s a player that is approaching the prime of his career and he’s settled into our team really well.”

Agar, too, had words of praise for Dwyer.

“Brad has been a revelation as a last minute signing for the club when there was nothing on the table for him at Warrington.

“Leeds got him last minute in probably a knockdown deal, but he’s really embraced the club and living in the city.

“He brings a lot of energy – too much at times when you need your ear defenders on because he doesn’t shut up!

“He’s an adopted son of the club and it’s a great achievement for them both.”
