Huddersfield Giants hooker Danny Levi left the club before the end of his contract to take up a deal with the Canberra Raiders in the NRL as was confirmed recently.
Speaking to the club website for the first time, Levi said he had been welcomed into the group.
“It’s been good so far, the family are enjoying it. The boys have been very welcoming.
“It is bloody beautiful, very professional and I am enjoying it so far.
“It’s always good, especially when you are going into the new club. I have played with a few of them before so it is good to get back with them.”
He also gave his verdict on his time at Huddersfield.
He said it “was awesome” and explained how it developed him as a player:
“It was awesome, to get to go over to the other side of the world and do some travelling over there and to play footy. It was different, it was colder, very very colder.
“I enjoyed every minute of it, it was awesome. I took my family over there too but it is good to be back home.
“Footy wise I got to test my minutes out playing 80 most of the time, so it’s good to know that I can do that.
“But it was enjoyable to see the other side of the world, travel with my family.”
Nonetheless, it was always his goal to return to the NRL: “One of my big goals was to get back to the NRL and play at the highest level.”
Levi was not the only Giant to leave Huddersfield for the NRL with Jack Cogger joining Penrith Panthers.
Meanwhile, Will Pryce will join Levi’s former club Newcastle Knights in 2024.
