Jesse Marsch says Leeds United star is obsessed with rugby league as he praises Leeds Rhinos’ end of season run

In order for rugby league to continue to grow, it needs to continue to work with other sports to learn what the next step should be for the sport.

That’s the same for other sports too and going into the World Cup Leeds Rhinos Head Coach Rohan Smith met up with Leeds United Manager Jesse Marsch to speak about the importance of sport to the city with Leeds hosting four games in the tournament including three group stage games at Headingley and a semi-final at Leeds United’s Elland Road.

As they spoke on the Rugby League World Cup website, Marsch revealed that one Leeds United star loves the game of rugby league.

He said: “Liam Cooper our captain loves rugby league knows a lot about Rohan and his team.

“I know he’s been to matches, when we were in Australia, he went to State of Origin, the third game there.

“Rohan and I were just talking about that and what an intense match that was.”

Marsch then spoke about what you can learn from the triumphs seen in other sport specifically how much it means to people turning to State of Origin and Leeds Rhinos’ incredible journey to the Grand final as examples that he will look to use in his role as Leeds United manager: “So how much do they learn from other sports? It’s partly understanding what it means to people and that you’re representing so much more than yourself when you walk out onto the pitch.

“It’s about being the best that we can be and certainly when I watch State of Origin, and even Leeds’ run, you become attached to it but you’re also so impressed with the commitment and desire to be your best.”
