Brett Ferres rejects NRL to stay in West Yorkshire.
Huddersfield Giants back row forward Brett Ferres has rejected advances from the NRL and has signed a contract extension to the end of 2019.
The club vice vaptain has recently returned to the team after injury and told www.giantsrl.com of his desire to remain at the club.
“Huddersfield have been very good to me and since being here I’ve moved into the England set up which was one of my aims and we’ve established ourselves at the top end of the table.
"I did have the option to go to the NRL at the end of this season but with Huddersfield wanting me longer term and the security that brought with it to me and the family who are very settled here I was only too happy to stay."
Giants Head Coach Paul Anderson said: “Brett is an international quality player and every team needs those guys to lead and perform well both on and off the field.
"He is one of our go to men when we need a play and a leader and someone who would enhance any team in the competition. His retention long term is great news for the club and the UK Super League as a whole as we were aware of interest elsewhere in his services.”
