Jake Connor explains why Huddersfield Giants have an “exciting squad” in 2023

Huddersfield Giants have made some huge signings for the 2023 Super League season.

The Giants have drafted in the likes of Esan Marsters, Harry Rushton and former St Helens star Kevin Naiqama from the NRL.

Meanwhile, they brought in three bodies from Wigan Warriors including two-time Grand Finalists Jake Bibby.

But perhaps the biggest signing was the arrival of former Hull FC star Jake Connor who returns to the club and he has spoken to Giants TV ahead of the new season and he has talked up the Giants squad and leaders: “I think it’s a great mix, you’ve got experience and older lads. Chris Hill has come off a great World Cup, Jermaine has been around for ages, Leroy has been round for ages.

“Luke Yates is the cog of the team and then the likes of Tui have played in big World Cup games. We’ve plenty of experience and then you think them young guys in there like Will Pryce and Olly Russell and stuff like that. You know you’ve got a great mixture and there’s exciting times ahead.”

In the past, he describe the club’s squad as the best in Super League:

“I think it’s going to be a good year. We’ve made some good signings, some exciting signings we just need that time on the training fields to make sure it all gels.

“I think we have a great squad going into this year. Probably if you look across the league, it’s probably the best squad when you actually look at it so I think we’ve got a real chance this year.”
