Will Pryce slams treatment by Huddersfield Giants after NRL debut

Former Huddersfield Giants star Will Pryce

Days after making his NRL debut, former Huddersfield Giants man Will Pryce has slammed his treatment by the club.

Son of Leon Pryce, he finally made his NRL debut for Newcastle Knights after months of being kept out of the side.

Leon Pryce, an England and Great Britain star, was a member of legendary Bradford Bulls and St Helens sides, and has 19 major trophies to his name, including four Super League titles and six Challenge Cup triumphs.

Will Pryce himself, meanwhile, burst on to the scene with Huddersfield in 2021, and has since represented the England Knights.

He took headlines after scoring on debut at the weekend, in Newcastle Knights’ first win after three successive losses.

Many suggested that he should now stay in the side, being a vast improvement on the side’s previous half-back pairings.

Will Pryce slams treatment by Huddersfield Giants

Now, speaking to The Mirror, he has revealed that he’s unhappy with the way he was treated while playing for the Giants.

He said: “I had a couple of tough years at Huddersfield. I probably wasn’t being treated the way I wanted to be treated.

“I had that ten game ban (for a dangerous throw) in 2022 when I made a bad decision.

“That went down and there was stuff going on at home. But probably the way some of the coaching staff treated me at Huddersfield, I probably felt I wasn’t getting the right training or stuff. I did think maybe this wasn’t for me.”

Now, however, he seems to be much happier, despite months of only being selected for the reserve-grade team.

He said: “I signed my contract and love the place. It’s such a good club, the way it’s run by the board, the coaching staff, how they treat me as a player and how much they have taught me as a player, I was never thinking about leaving.

“I was just thinking maybe I’m not good enough and at the end of this year or next, the club might turn around and say ‘you’re not good enough.’

“That was probably the most nerve-wracking. But I managed to prove I was good enough and thankfully I’m playing now.”

He’s set to play against Canberra Raiders this weekend after his excellent display last time out.
