Leeds Rhinos head coach Richard Agar calls for people to listen to ‘the experts’ on COVID-19 issue

With the COVID-19 virus once more running riot through UK society, sports teams are becoming increasingly affected.

The football leagues have all seen games postponed, but rugby league will be hoping that, by February, they will not have to do the same.

However, for Leeds Rhinos head coach Richard Agar, the pandemic is an issue which people should look towards medical professionals.

“We’re stepping into the unknown, but you’re better listening to the experts than my opinion on it,” Agar said.

“Hopefully there are enough measures in place that we can cope with what’s coming our way.

“We currently have got one Covid variant at the club, I’m not quite sure what variant he has got but he’s coming out of his isolation period soon.”

Agar also revealed that his side had their boosters for the COVID-19 jab before Christmas.

“Our protocols were as robust as they have been leading up to the game on Boxing Day and we asked players to be as vigilant as they could be leading into the game.

“I don’t know if we will have an issue free season, there are some pretty doom and gloom scenarios whenever you switch the TV on, so you will anticipate that the next three, four and five weeks will be a bit of a test.”
