Exclusive: Olly Ashall-Bott gives honest opinion on Will Pryce’s positional switch

Will Pryce has been hitting all the headlines in the past year or so after making it all the way through to the Huddersfield Giants first-team despite his young age.

The elusive playmaker made his debut in 2021 and went on to register 13 appearances for the Giants following the injury to Aidan Sezer, but it was the ease in which he stepped into the cauldron of first team rugby that has impressed all who have seen him in action.

For Olly Ashall-Bott, who himself recently signed a deal to stay at the John Smith’s Stadium for 2022, Pryce is an incredibly talented player with a huge future.

“I think you could put Prycey anywhere and he would be a star,” Ashall-Bott told Serious About Rugby League.

“But no he’s a serious talent and someone I love playing with because he’s so off the cuff.”

Despite coming through the ranks to play halfback in his maiden season, it is fullback where Pryce is expected to hang his hat next season, meaning he will be battling with Ashall-Bott and Ashton Golding for that number one spot.

“Fullback probably suits him the best because he’s such a good ball runner and can pass and kick so it’s like having another halfback on the pitch.

“I also learn little bits from him which probably sounds weird because I’m few years older than him.

“But when you’ve got a dad like Leon Pryce, he can tell you everything there is to know in rugby league.”
