Huddersfield Giants star Will Pryce explains why NRL move will not happen till 2024

Huddersfield Giants star Will Pryce will be following Wigan Warriors’ Kai Pearce-Paul to the NRL in 2024 as they both join the Newcastle Knights.

But the question has been asked, why are both remaining in Super League for 2023 when they have already signed off on deals in 2024.

The Knights were open about wanting both for 2023 after all.

Now, speaking to the Trott The Egg podcast, Pryce has explained why his respect has kept him there for 2023.

He said:

“That’s no disrespect to Huddersfield. I said to the club that I wouldn’t leave early and that I wanted to finish my contract there and repay the club in general for what they have done for me.

“They gave me the opportunity and I will be forever thankful for that.”

He also revealed that he had turned down Super League clubs and rugby union sides in the past:

“I remember after my first year in Super League, I couldn’t have been more lucky. I played every game in the second half of the season. I ended up playing 13 games on the trot and there was suddenly a bit of hype around me.

“That’s when, at the end of that season, Newcastle kind of became interested in signing me. I was getting interest from the NRL in general. I remember I also had a couple of clubs in Super League interested as well as union clubs. I suppose I had a lot of attention for the right reasons.”
