Aidan Sezer returns home during lockdown while Blake Austin stays in England

Huddersfield half-back Aidan Sezer has returned to Australia to be with his family during the coronavirus pandemic, while Blake Austin will stay in England.

All levels of rugby league in the UK has been suspended since March 16 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with a return date yet to be announced.

Giants’ marquee man Sezer has gone home to be with his family until play resumes – but Warrington star Austin has decided to stay in England.

Austin told Sky Sports Radio: “Aidan is a really close mate, he has finally pulled the pin and flew back home a couple of days ago and will wait it out back home and come back when the footy is back.

“I’m employed by the Warrington Wolves. The Super League has a real fight on its hands to really keep the game thriving and I am here to be a part of that.

“I am keeping my training up and hopefully I get the call soon that there is a real plan in place to get the game going ahead. I want to see some footy back soon.”
