Huddersfield Giants signing touches down in the UK for pre-season

At the end of September, Huddersfield confirmed the signing of New Zealand international hooker Danny Levi on a two-year deal ahead of what Giants fans hope will be a big season for Huddersfield.

Levi made four appearances for the Kiwis in the last World Cup and has 112 NRL appearances to his name for Newcastle Knights, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos whom he leaves to take up the opportunity at Huddersfield in 2022 and 2023.

After the deal was confirmed on September 29th, Levi has been preparing for the move across the world with his partner Kimberly and the new beginning afforded to him in West Yorkshire. Today he has arrived in the UK ready to join up with the Giants’ preparations for the 2022 campaign under Ian Watson.

The Giants then took to social media to announce his arrival in a wet UK.

It’s been a big day on the Giants’ Twitter page with the club also releasing a sneak peak at their 2022 jerseys.

So, it seems Huddersfield fans have a lot to look forward to with Levi also being joined by fellow exciting signings Theo Fages and Tui Lolohea as Watson builds a new look spine for 2022. It’s yet to be seen who Watson will opt for as his first choice fullback however with Ashton Golding and Will Pryce vying for the role along with Olly Ashall-Bott who was confirmed as re-signing with the Giants yesterday.

Even the hooker role isn’t guaranteed with Adam O’Brien also a good shout for the number nine jersey. However, it seems Watson has high hopes for Levi. The Giants coach said of Levi when he signed: “Danny is electric in and around the ruck, he’s really quick and he’s got great skill.

“His distribution is first class and he brings people onto the ball. He brings the forwards onto the ball to generate the quicker ruck speed.

“His running game will make us dangerous in and around the spine.”

Levi will be hoping for a big year with Huddersfield working alongside the likes of Fages and Lolohea.
