“I’d probably say I’ll be going home” – Woolford expecting to leave Huddersfield

Huddersfield head coach Simon Woolford has admitted he expects to leave the club at the end of this season.

Woolford’s current contract expires at the end of 2020 and he is yet to be offered a new deal with the Giants.

He took the reigns in 2018 and since then, has made significant progress with his side but believes his chances of remaining in the UK next year are slim.

“At this stage if I was a betting man I’d probably say I’ll be going home,” Woolford said. “When I took this job on I always anticipated it was a three to four year job.

“I’ve been here just over two years now and I feel like we’ve made a lot of inroads with our squad. When I first got here it was pretty dire, the club was looking at relegation.

“But if you have a look at our squad now, all things being equal it’s a squad that can compete for trophies in Super League.

“There’s still a bit of work to do, I think we’re about three quarters of the way through and I’d like to finish it, but at this stage if I was a betting man that won’t be the case.

“We’ll just wait and see over the next month.”
