Former Castleford Tigers, Wakefield Trinity and Huddersfield Giants forward Craig Huby has announced his retirement from the game.
The 33-year-old has taken the decision to walk away from the game after seeing a specialist over a persistent shoulder injury. He explained the situation in a social media post.
He started his career at the Tigers and made his debut for the club in 2003. He went on to make 199 appearances for the Tigers, in both the Super League and the National League (Championship).
The forward was given a testimonial at the club as well for over 10 years service. This was marked with a friendly against Halifax on Boxing Day in 2013.
His best moment in a Cas shirt was walking out at Wembley, as the Tigers reached the Challenge Cup Final, although they lost on the day.
Soon after, Huby left the Tigers and joined Huddersfield Giants on a four-year-deal. He was a crucial player in 2015 and played a part in the club’s third place finish.
But an early wrist injury disrupted his 2016 campaign and he was allowed to leave at the end of the season. He signed for West Yorkshire rivals Wakefield.
He played over 50 games for Wakefield, but picked up a shoulder injury in February 2019, and has not been able to play since.
Huby left Wakefield by mutual consent a few months later, and has now announced he will retire from the game.
He retires with just under 300 games under his belt across a 16-year career spanning across three different clubs in West Yorkshire.
