Though Will Pryce will remain a Huddersfield Giants player in 2023, the club have confirmed that he will leave at the conclusion of next season to make the move to Australia.
It is all but confirmed that he will follow in the footsteps of fellow Huddersfield Giants academy graduate Dom Young to the Newcastle Knights whilst being joined by Wigan Warriors star Kai Pearce-Paul who has routinely been linked with a move alongside Pryce.
Despite this news, Huddersfield remain keen to help Pryce in his development as Managing Director Robert Thewlis said: “The key focus for Will now is to have a great pre-season with us and get ready to become an integral part of Ian Watsons 2023 plans. We believe we have an excellent squad and the opportunity and ability to push on again after last year’s successes. ”
He also believes that the move proves the quality of the Huddersfield Giants academy which in recent years has produced players like the Senior twins and of course Pryce and Young.
He said: “Whilst there is obvious disappointment at the club it is also a great accolade for Will to be offered an opportunity whilst so young and for the coaches involved in our player development model and indeed everyone here who has been involved with Will from his first a day as a 16 year old.
“It shows that our club is one that produces high quality professional players from within – indeed we now sit in the top three in the entire game for developing Super League players with our academy again being graded as Outstanding by the RFL’s independent auditors.”
