Simpson Signs New Giants Deal

Jared Simpson

"I'm over the moon and very grateful to Rick Stone for the opportunity."

Huddersfield Giants utility back Jared Simpson has signed a one year contract extension until the end of the 2018 season.

Simpson burst onto the scene in 2015 but has had a frustrating time with injuries since then.

He told the club's official website: "I'm over the moon and very grateful to Rick Stone for the opportunity. He has stuck by me and saw how hard I worked in the off season and it was really frustrating that I injured my medial knee ligament in the pre-season trial against Bradford. 

"I'm fit now and raring to go and the medical department especially Ollie Waite have been a massive help in getting me back ahead of schedule. I'm going to train hard and hopefully now I'm back for good. I just want to help the boys out whether that is in training or on the pitch playing and I would love to get back out on the field as soon as possible.

"Rick has put a lot of faith in me and when I get back out on the field I intend to repay him and the fans who have been so supportive."
