Huddersfield Giants hand new deal to ‘shocked’ starlet

George Roby has extended his contract with Huddersfield Giants, signing a new one-year deal to keep him at the club until 2023.

The England Academy hooker joined in 2020 and has featured for the Academy and Reserves in his time with the club.

Huddersfield Giants Head Coach, Ian Watson said: “He’s really matured and developed while he’s been with us, so he’s been rightly rewarded with a new contract.

“His attitude off the field has improved massively and he’s been driving the players in the right direction and encouraging people to be better.

“As well as him developing on the field, the big thing for me has been his developing off the field. We’ve rewarded that development with a one-year deal and we’ll see where we go from there.”

George Roby said: “I’m buzzing to sign an extension with the club. I was shocked when I got the call from my agent, but I was absolutely buzzing that I was offered an extension.

“I feel I’ve come on leaps and bounds since I’ve first come to the club, and I’m enjoying my Rugby. Watto is good at getting the younger lads involved in the first-team and I’m enjoying my opportunities in training, filling in for Danny Levi and Adam O’Brien.

“When I’m getting those opportunities in training, I’m trying to show as much as I can and I just want to keep getting them.”
