In a statement posted to the club website the Giants announced: “Huddersfield Giants are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of former coach and friend, Andrew Farrell.
“Huddersfield born and bred Andrew was known well by many in and around the club. He was a part of Ian Watson’s coaching staff last season specialising in wrestling and contact training for the team.
“The thoughts of everyone at the club are with his family and friends at this difficult time.”
Statement: Andrew Farrell.
