For Aidan Sezer, the 2022 Super League season has been a difficult one to endure.
Having moved from the Huddersfield Giants at the end of 2021, the diminutive halfback was hailed as the missing piece of the jigsaw alongside former Canberra Raiders teammate Blake Austin.
However, injuries have taken their toll on Sezer in that time, sidelining him for months, but he is now ready to return.
“I’m feeling good, I’m fairly confident I’ve done a lot of hard work with the physios to get the body right,” Sezer told Rhinos TV.
“I’m feeling confident and hopefully I will be up for selection for the next game.”
That next game will be against St Helens on Thursday night – the reigning champions – as Leeds look to get back on the horse following a disappointment outcome against Huddersfield Giants last time out.
For Sezer, however, the 2022 season has been the hardest part of his career so far.
“Physically there’s not much you can do, but mentally it’s been the toughest part of my career.
“Coming to a new club that is fairly ambitious and just being hindered by injuries doesn’t help but the body is feeling good and it’s behind me – I’m ready to get back to business.”
The halfback has a main aim for the next few weeks and months – stay fit.
“Hopefully I can stay injury free and play my best footy – getting the body right was my biggest obstacle and now I’m confident in what I can do.”
Leeds fans will be hoping that Sezer is able to rekindle the form which made him a frontrunner for the Man of Steel back in 2020 after a stellar year with the Giants.
