Jake Connor granted immediate release from Hull FC as he joins another Super League club

Hull FC Jake Connor

Jake Connor has been granted an immediate release from his contract with Hull FC to rejoin the Huddersfield Giants in 2023.

The utility back is one of the star players in Super League and provided the most try assists in the 2022 season as he now joins an already stacked Giants squad.

Connor returns to Huddersfield to be closer to his young family after leaving the Giants in 2017.

On the move, Connor said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be coming back. Although it wasn’t an easy decision it’s definitely the right one for me and my family. I feel like I’ve got some unfinished business at the club and I’ve got some old mates here that I can’t wait to catch up with.

“I’m really looking forward to working under Ian Watson and also Luke Robinson who I know well. I’ve played against Ian’s sides on numerous occasions and they’re always well drilled. We’ve got a good squad and a good structure and I can’t wait to be a part of it and enjoy my rugby.

Huddersfield Head Coach, Ian Watson, added “I’d like to welcome Jake back to the Giants he is a huge signing for us. Jake is a player I have admired from afar, and is a tough competitor who wants to win at all costs and will drive people in his team to be better and want more.

“Last year we were the 4th best attack in Super League and hopefully adding Jake into our team can propel us to score even more points while maintaining our defensive mentality.

“This is a great moment for Huddersfield to get back one of our own players and a lot of credit should go to Richard and Ken for working so hard to get this deal through.”
