Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and Hull KR have made some major signings for next year and Leeds have made another move according to reports.
The Rhinos have reportedly signed NRL fullback Lachie Miller on a three year deal according to The Mole of Wide World of Sports.
Fascinatingly, Miller has had a career like no other. He made his name playing Rugby Sevens and was named in the Australian 19 man squad for the Olympics in 2021.
Miller was a star as they made the quarter-finals and earned a move to the NRL with Cronulla Sharks where he emerged as a surprise star in the games he played scoring in almost every other game.
He then joined Newcastle Knights this year to solve their fullback problem with Kayln Ponga moving to stand-off.
He was a real star man but before long Ponga was back at fullback with the balance of the Knights a little off.
Not playing as much, he is now set to move to Leeds.
It nicely offsets the loss of Aidan Sezer who has signed for Wests Tigers.
“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 Benji 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.
