Giants Sign Colton Roche

Colton Roche

He joins from Bradford on a two-year contract.

Former Bradford Bulls second rower/prop Colton Roche has signed for Huddersfield Giants until the end of 2019.

24-year-old Roche, who has played internationally for Ireland, put pen to paper with the Betfred Super League club.

He told giantsrl.com that he cannot wait to get started: “I’m definitely excited. It’s a club that as soon as they gave me a call and asked me to join I jumped at the chance.

“Just being in the changing room and around the stadium, with all due to respect to the Championship Clubs, this is a different world and I’m really looking forward to the professionalism at this Club and to make myself a better player in every opportunity I get.”

“I’d actually spoken to Adam O’Brien before the move and he had nothing to say but good things about the Club and that made my decision a bit easier. It will be good to get behind some other experienced players and hopefully I’ll get some appearances under my belt.

“I just want to get in the side as early as possible and to be consistent all year to make sure I improve every game.”
