HUDDERSFIELD Giants have confirmed the signing of Warrington Wolves youngster George Roby.

The England Academy hooker has penned a two-year deal at the John Smith's Stadium.

Roby – a Crosfields junior and a former Beamont Collegiate Academy student – had progressed through the Wire academy but had not made his first-team debut for the club.

"I’m just buzzing to get started, I’m raring to go and it’s great to be getting started at a big club like Huddersfield, the stadium is absolutely unbelievable," the 18-year-old told the Giants' official website.

"I’ve signed a two year deal and my ambition is to play Super League, but first I want to prove what I can do in training and then hopefully I can play first team.

"Ian Watson is one of the best coaches in the world at the minute and it’s obvious that the club have got some big names like Aidan Sezer, I’ve watched Aidan play NRL and if I could play alongside him it would just be incredible.

"I’ve been on a lot of zoom calls with the academy and it’s just amazing.

"The set up that they have is incredible and Huddersfield is a club that gives the young lads opportunities, so it was a no brainer to sign the deal.”
