NRL club fended off huge competition from other clubs to sign Super League star from Huddersfield Giants

Last night, Huddersfield Giants confirmed the exit of Will Pryce to Australia at the end of 2023.

Though they did not confirm which NRL team he would be joining, it is almost common knowledge at this stage that Pryce and Wigan Warriors star Kai Pearce-Paul would be headed to Newcastle Knights following England star Dom Young to the club.

Shortly after this news, the Daily Telegraph released further information about Pryce’s move all but confirming that he would be joining the Knights in 2024.

They also revealed that the Knights had fended off plenty of competition to sign the young fullback / halfback.

Where this competition came from remains unknown. It seems that it mostly came from other interested NRL clubs however there were rumours last year that Super League rivals Leeds Rhinos were interested.

Naturally, Pryce has also been linked with a move to St Helens where his father Leon shone winning the treble in 2006.

However, Pryce will not be following in his father’s footsteps instead electing to pursue a new challenge in the NRL with the Newcastle Knights.

As aforementioned, the Knights already have Young and are expected to sign Pearce-Paul from Wigan.

They also have Castleford Tigers youngster Bailey Hodgson in their squad.
