Huddersfield Giants halfback confirms exit from club

Huddersfield Giants have had envious depth in the spine in 2022.

At fullback they could pick from any of Will Pryce, Tui Lolohea, Ash Golding and even Louis Senior played there frequently for the reserves.

They were even able to let go of the brilliant Olly Ashall-Bott at the start of the season they had such depth there.

In the halves, Pryce and Lolohea could again cover as could Theo Fages, Olly Russell and Jack Cogger. Meanwhile at nine they had Danny Levi, Adam O’Brien, Golding and young George Roby who due to the depth was allowed to go out on loan picking up the League 1 Young Player of the Year award whilst picking up some vital experience.

The Giants are unlikely to let that depth dissolve, however they do seem to be prioritising depth elsewhere with three new centres joining the club in Kevin Naiqama, Esan Marsters and Jake Bibby.

In placing more of the cap in this area, some players elsewhere inevitably have to leave and one of those is Jack Cogger.

The Australian halfback joined the Giants ahead of 2021 and has been an important option for Ian Watson side.

When injuries and suspensions mounted at the start of the season, he was a steady hand in the halves and even enjoyed the chance to play in a Challenge Cup Final against Wigan where he was unlucky to end up on the wrong side of the scoreline.

However, his time with the club has come to an end taking to Instagram to thank the Giants and receiving many good luck messages from his teammates with fellow halfback Theo Fages saying: “All the best for the future.”

It is unclear where Cogger will head to now, but he will not be with the Giants in 2023.
