Leeds Rhinos and England full-back Zak Hardaker has insisted that it is “not impossible” for the club to repeat their treble-winning exploits of 2015.
The Rhinos, who face Bradford in a pre-season friendly today (Sunday), are bearing up to the prospect of starting again in 2016 without the likes of Kevin Sinfield, Jamie Peacock and Kylie Leuluai.
But Hardaker, who will continue in the goal-kicking role Sinfield vacated against the Bulls today, says there’s no reason why they can’t achieve what they did last year again this season.
Hardaker also discusses his own incredible season on a personal level which culminated in him winning the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel, as well as reflecting on the treble Leeds secured last year.
As well as the video with Hardaker, there’s a full interview in tomorrow’s League Express with the England star, too.
