Popular Huddersfield coach agrees new deal

Huddersfield Giants assistant coach Luke Robinson has signed a new three-year contract to remain at the club until 2024.

Robinson, who made over 220 appearances for the club as a player between 2008 and 2015, has been part of the coaching staff since hanging up his boots.

He had been working with the Academy, as an assistant, and then up to Head Coach.

In 2020, he became interim Head Coach of the Giants, following Simon Woolford’s resignation. He won three of his five matches in charge to get them up to seventh place in the Super League.

Since then, he has become an assistant to new Head Coach Ian Watson.

On his new deal, Robinson said: “I’m excited, I feel like I want to be a part of what Ian Watson is trying to achieve. I’ve made Huddersfield my home for the last 15 years and they’ve always been good to me and I want to repay the club with some silverware. The good times are coming around again.

“I’ve learned a lot from Ian Watson; a lot around the off the field stuff, which is what I want to grow and develop here. I love the way he is around the club, how honest he is and how frank he is with the staff. It’s been a great learning position for me.

“I want to win things, sometimes I feel that coaches and players downplay that, but that’s what I’m here, doing hours on the coaching field and hours at home on video working towards. I’m trying to make players and the team better so we can win things and I want to be part of that.”
