Huddersfield Giants’ Chris Hill reveals Super League future and what would make him retire

At 34 years of age, many rugby league players would be wanting to wind down their careers – not Chris Hill.

The former Warrington Wolves forward – who made the move to the Huddersfield Giants ahead of the 2022 Super League season – has no plans to hang up his boots just yet.

That will be music to many Huddersfield fans’ ears as he has excelled in 2022 with his new side.

“I’ve not got thoughts on that at the minute, I will see what happens,” Hill revealed.

“My body is feeling good, so hopefully I’ve got another year or two in me.

“When that motivation goes within me, I know that will be when I retire. It’s an all-round good club here at Huddersfield, I want to repay the faith that Watto (Ian Watson) put in me.”

Winding down the clock on his career, Hill has come to the John Smith’s Stadium to win things and has loved absolutely every minute of being in a new environment with a new coach and a new set of players.

“I’ve loved it absolutely loved it, I’ve never had to travel to anywhere, I’ve been at Warrington for ten years.

“But it’s been great, Watto has been great and the players have welcomed me with open arms.

“We’ve got a good mix of youth and enthusiasm as well as experience with Ricky Leutele and Chris McQueen whilst Theo has won many things.”

Hill has arguably been one of the most in-form forwards in the competition, but, despite his good performances, he has no urge to try and force his way into the England set-up under Shaun Wane for the World Cup at the end of the year.

“I’ve not spoken anything to Shaun, I had 11 weeks out and I wanted to just concentrate on getting back to fitness with Huddersfield which I feel like I have the last couple of weeks.”
