Huddersfield Giants name new captain for the 2022 Super League season

Ian Watson has named his on-field captain and vice captains for the 2022 Super League season. 

Luke Yates has been given the privilege of leading as captain whilst Theo Fages and Chris McQueen will support him in the role as vice captains. Michael Lawrence will continue in his role as club captain. 

“It’s one of the biggest honours you can get,” said Yates.

“Getting voted in by the people you’re playing with week in and week out, it gives me a lot of confidence that they are backing me to do the right thing and I am doing my best to do the right thing by them so it’s massive.” 

Ian Watson spoke highly of those mentioned: “During pre-season we spoke a lot about the values we want to live, train and play by. Players were then asked to vote on who they wanted to lead them on the field based on those values.

“Luke, Chris and Theo have personified these values all through pre-season and this has been recognised by the squad.

However, I have to say that there are a number of players that could have fulfilled these roles such as Chris Hill, Leroy Cudjoe and Adam O’Brien, and with this group of players we will always have a wealth of experience and leaders on the field.” 

Huddersfield will be in action on Saturday night as they take on Toulouse Olympique away in France.
