Matty, nicknamed ‘The Polar Bear’ made his Giants debut in 2017 and has since made 94 appearances for the club and has cemented his name in Ian Watson’s 2023 squad.
One of our Own, English came through the Giants Academy system and is one of the many success stories of recent years and will take his place on the interchange bench for tonight’s clash vs Castleford Tigers as we look for our first home victory.
Scoring his first try for the club vs Wakefield Trinity in the Challenge Cup, the powerful forward has gone from strength to strength ever since.
“It’s crazy, I spoke to my mum and dad about it, when I signed it was very much well the Giants is where you’re starting off but who knows where you’ll end up, but I’m still here! I signed 8 years ago and I am still here, but it was massive milestone for him (McGillvary 300 games) and if I can get anywhere near that I’d be honoured”
“Matty is a brilliant lad, and a vital part of this club. He works hard and is a core member of the team dynamic. He’s a big player for the Giants and has no limit to what he can achieve at this club.”
