Huddersfield Giants set for signing as Toby King says first words as a Wigan Warriors player

Huddersfield Giants have already made some impressive signings going into 2023.

They have signed three-time Super League Champion Kevin Naiqama who left St Helens in 2021 with the Harry Sunderland Award prior to spending a season with the Sydney Roosters.

Then last week the Giants announced the signing of another high profile centre in New Zealand international Esan Marsters from Gold Coast Titans.

But their business hasn’t ended there. The Giants are set to announce another signing on Wednesday which the club has described as “the worst kept secret.”

It is speculated that it could be yet another centre in the shape of Jake Bibby who has been rumoured to be joining Huddersfield almost all season.

Bibby played under Huddersfield boss Ian Watson at Salford as they made the 2019 Grand Final prior to making the 2020 decider with Wigan as he started a three-year stint with the Warriors.

He is expected to leave the DW Stadium ahead of next year to be potentially replaced by Dean Whare who has been let go of by Catalans Dragons.

The Warriors already have a new centre signed on for next year in the shape of Toby King who joins the Cherry and Whites on loan.

King spent the second half of the 2022 campaign on loan at Huddersfield in a swap that saw Jake Wardle go the other way however an agreement which could see the two swap clubs permanently couldn’t be reached which allowed the Warriors to swoop in and secure King on a year loan from the Wolves and now he has said his first words as a Wigan player.

“Just arrived at Wigan: wow. Absolutely blown away, the facilities are absolutely class. I can’t wait to see you all on the terraces and around the town.

“Excited for it all and hopefully I see you all soon. Time to get stuck into pre-season training.”
