Turner granted testimonial

Huddersfield Giants centre Jordan Turner has been granted a testimonial for the 2021 season for his services to the game.

Turner started his career at Salford Red Devils in 2007, before moving to Hull FC in 2010. He spent three years at the Black and Whites before signing for St Helens.

The Jamaica international won the Super League title with Saints, before then trying his hand in the NRL with Canberra Raiders in 2017. He then returned to the UK with Huddersfield after less than a year with the Raiders.

He told the club website: “I’ve not spent ten years at one club but I’d like to think I’ve given a lot of service to the game.

“I debuted at 17 and I’m 31 now, to be granted one is a massive honour and to have a bit of recognition for my services is something I’m proud of. To have a match dedicated to my career is a real honour.

“But I’m quite excited about the end of the testimonial which coincides with the World Cup. I’ve spoken to Alex Simmonds who is the general manager of Jamaica and we’ve discussed having a closing party linked with an opening party for Jamaica’s World Cup campaign, which would be something a bit different.”
