New Leeds Rhinos boss Rohan Smith gives Zak Hardaker update following another round of tests

Zak Hardaker shocked the rugby league world moving back to Leeds Rhinos over a week ago.

With him leaving Wigan Warriors, the fullback was considering a big move back to Yorkshire, but it was Leeds that snapped up their former player on a deal until the end of the season.

However, with Hardaker set to be given his debut against Hull KR, the 30-year-old suffered a suspected seizure outside his house last Tuesday after a training session.

Now, new head coach Rohan Smith has revealed that he will be getting more clued up about the situation before he comments too much, but he did reveal that Hardaker had been tested again after successful first tests.

“The club had already had conversations with Zak before I was announced, but it’s a little unfortunate the situation that happened last week,” Smith said.

“But if the tests have come back fine then we look forward to welcoming back into the fold.

“I’ve got a vague overview and the first set of testing were all positive results, meaning he was good.

“There may be some other results waiting to be finalised or fed back. I will be getting an update on him.”
