Huddersfield Giants have completed the signing of halfback Aiden Sezer from NRL side Canberra Raiders on a two-year-deal.

It’s a story that has been rumoured for a while, but the Giants confirmed the news at 7am on Thursday Morning.

The halfback has over 150 NRL appearances to his name, and helped the Raiders to the NRL Grand Final in 2019, though they lost against Sydney Roosters.

He has also worked with new Head Caoch Simon Woolford before, when the pair were briefly at Gold Coast Titans. The 28-year-old was also in the same squad as Jordan Turner during the centre’s time in Canberra.

Sezer told the club website: “It’s been a drawn out process for most of the year, but to have it all done is a great relief. Joining up with Simon and the boys will be a relief – obviously it was a disappointing campaign last year for the Giants but the ambition of the club and the group is exciting.

“I’m really looking forward to get over there and have a successful campaign in 2020.”

Head Coach Woolford added: “I am delighted to finally get the news of Aidan Sezer’s signing out as it’s been a long process.

“There are lots of people here at the club to thank for making this possible – especially Ken of course – but as a coach my predominant view is what he’ll bring to the team. He is an experienced organiser, a superb kicker of the ball both out of the hand and off the tee, and with his 83% kicking success rate, he’ll obviously become our primary kicker.

“I’m looking forward to him being in the UK as soon as possible and getting him over and stuck right into work around our structures and principals.”
