Huddersfield Giants ward off rival clubs to tie down exciting youngster

Ian Watson Head Coach of Huddersfield Giants

Huddersfield Giants prop Fenton Rogers, son of former Oldham, Rochdale Hornets and Swinton Lions prop Wes Rogers, has signed his first professional contract.

The forward – who turned 18 on in August when he also played for Lancashire in an Academy Roses match against Yorkshire – was picked up by Huddersfield as a 14-year-old playing at Saddleworth Rangers.

Giants head coach Ian Watson said: “We’re really impressed with his development over the last year and delighted to see him sign a first-team contract. He has been named in the 19-man squad this season, and we were impressed with his preparation for that game and it showed his professionalism and commitment to the club.”

“He’s another one that’s come off the production line, but he offers something different – he’s a big lad with great leg speed and he’s got the thing that you can’t teach: aggression. He needs to learn to manage that and control it but he’s got a great skill set.”

“He’s got a great future and we’re impressed with how far he’s come over the last year and his application and effort with the first team this season.”
