Giants Add Aussie Star For 2016

Ryan Hinchcliffe

Ryan Hinchcliffe has agreed a three-year deal from next season.

Huddersfield Giants have made another addition to their squad for the 2016 season.

They're bringing in Melbourne Storm star Ryan Hinchcliffe.

He's agreed a three year deal and will arrive in West Yorkshire for pre-season training in November.

The 30 year old forward is a member of the Storm leadership group and captained the side in their latest NRL game with Penrith.

Giants head coach Paul Anderson told www.giantsrl.com: "This is a huge signing for our club and in truth Ryan has been our number one target to bring in for quite some time now.

"He is a quality nine but equally at home at loose forward. We are looking forward immensely to welcoming him and his family to our club."

Hinchcliffe added: "Huddersfield made their interest known quite some time back and I've had a few chats with coach Paul Anderson about the team and what he's looking for.

"They've been close to the top for a few years and I hope that I can help them build on that. The reality is though it's a big move for me and the family to a new culture and we hope we can repay Huddersfield's faith in us."
