Exclusive: Leon Pryce talks son Will’s future after NRL links

He’s taken Super League by storm and now he’s predicted to take the world by storm, but Huddersfield Giants’ Will Pryce is still only 19 years of age.

Pryce made 13 appearances for the Giants in 2021 after breaking through to the first-team following the injury to Aidan Sezer, but it was the ease in which he stepped into the cauldron that has impressed all who have seen him in action.

But, father Leon, has called on Will to step it up in pre-season as he gears up for the 2022 Super League season.

“He just needs to work hard and keep his head down and have a really good pre-season,” father Leon told Serious About Rugby League.

At the core of Pryce’s game is an unbelievable ability to outstrip defences with his pace, temerity and skill at such a young age.

And, it’s this mercurial play that caught the eye of NRL suitors earlier in the year, but Leon has rubbished such reports, revealing that Will is just thinking about Huddersfield.

“He’s a Huddersfield player for the next two years and we won’t be looking past that at this time.

“His focus is on his own pre-season so contract-wise there’s nothing to talk about there.

“Obviously there are options out there eventually but he’s taking care of his game and I’ll be there to support him 100%.”
