Olympic athlete shockingly signs three year deal with huge Super League club

Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull KR and Hull FC have all completed major signings for 2024 and now another is set to join one of these clubs according to reports.

Some clubs have already turned to the NRL for signings with Wigan bringing back former Huddersfield Giants and Leeds hooker Kruise Leeming, Warrington signing Lachlan Fitzgibbon and Hull KR signing Oliver Gildart and Peta Hiku.

Now Leeds have moved for an NRL star but with some very interesting experience.

Lachie Miller is a former Rugby Sevens player and featured in the 2020 Olympics.

The speedster then began starring in the NRL and currently plies his trade at Newcastle Knights.

According to the Mole of Wide World of Sports, he has signed a three year deal with the club.

This offsets the news of Aidan Sezer’s departure.

The 32-year-old will return to the NRL after four seasons in the Super League. He has signed for the Wests Tigers.

Before moving to England Sezer played 155 games across eight seasons in the NRL, including a Grand Final appearance for the Raiders in 2019.

Wests Tigers assistant coach Benji Marshall, who will move into the head coaching role next season, says Sezer will bring a wealth of experience to the club.

“We are very excited to have a player with Aidan’s experience and calibre to add to what we’re building for our future,” said Marshall.

“He’s a very good person and we look forward to what he can bring to our club on and off the field.

“His experience will complement our youth and he’ll help mentor our younger players, particularly in our spine.”

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe is pleased to welcome Sezer to the club.

“It’s great that Aidan has decided to return to the NRL with us,” said Pascoe.

“On behalf of the club, I welcome Aidan and his family to Wests Tigers.”

Sezer still has a chance left at a big hoorah at Headingley. The Rhinos are now just two points off the play-offs and have the best points difference of any side pushing for a spot in the top six.

The halfback will be key if Leeds are going to find a way to make the play-offs and push to Old Trafford as they did last year.

Last year Sezer missed out on the final after a head injury in the semi-final.
