“My goal was always to get back in the NRL” – Ex-Huddersfield Giants man breaks silence on move

The Canberra Raiders have confirmed the signing of Danny Levi for the next two seasons this weekend.

The Samoan international will join the Raiders on a two-year deal for the 2023 and 2024 seasons.

The 25-year-old hooker has played 112 NRL matches for Newcastle Knights, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos, along with 20 matches for Huddersfield Giants in the Super League last year as he helped the club to the play-offs.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said Levi’s addition to the squad provides the club with an experienced player in an important position.

“We’re really pleased to secure Danny Levi for the next two seasons, with his experience and skill at hooker providing us with another quality player in that position in the NRL squad.”

Now, Levi has spoken for the first time since leaving the Giants to return home for personal reasons after the World Cup as he takes up a contract with the Canberra Raiders saying it was always his aim to return to the NRL and that he was glad that the opportunity came up.

“I was supposed to be over there [in England] for two years and I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to come back. I really wanted to get back in the NRL and compete at the best level again.

“I knew the Raiders were a very prestigious club, with a lot of really great history.”
