The Morning After looks at three talking points from the latest Super League action.
Newman injury blow
Leeds’ comfortable 41-16 win over Hull KR came at a cost with the loss of rising star Harry Newman with a broken leg.
The 20-year-old was stretchered off the field and taken to hospital after attempting a tackle 30 minutes into the game at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
It is a huge blow for the Rhinos and Newman, who was named in Shaun Wane’s England squad earlier this year. He is a phenomenal talent so let’s wish him a speedy recovery.
Salford winger Krisnan Inu has been in sensational form in recent weeks and Red Devils coach Ian Watson will not doubt be impressed with Inu’s performances.
Inu scored 16 points as he bagged two tries and kicked four goals in Salford’s 28-22 win over Hull at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and he was a constant threat for Hull’s defence.
The 33-year-old is an experienced player, with more than 200 career appearances to his name for Parramatta, New Zealand Warriors, Canterbury, Catalans, Widnes and Salford. Inu, who has represented New Zealand and Samoa, is one of the in-form players in Super League right now.
Sezer shows his class
Aidan Sezer produced a masterclass to inspire Huddersfield to a 31-19 victory against Castleford in Warrington. He was absolutely electric and he is one of Huddersfield’s best overseas signings of the Super League era.
Sezer is a marquee player for the Giants and it’s not hard to see why. When he plays well, the team plays well.
The 29-year-old has been brilliant in 2020 and is a box office player. He’s such an influential player for the Giants.
