Adam O’Brien commits long-term future to Huddersfield

Adam O’Brien has signed a three-year contract extension with Huddersfield, keeping him at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.

The 25-year-old has made 43 appearances since joining from Bradford Bulls in 2017.

A hooker by trade, O’Brien has scored 42 tries in 176 career appearances.

On his new deal, O’Brien said: “I’m really happy, I had a year left to run so for the club to come in and offer me a three-year extension is great.

“It means I can concentrate on my rugby solely and to be secure and know you’re going to play your rugby here for the next four seasons is excellent. I can crack on for the season now.

“My major expectation for the next four years is obvious – we want to get to finals and win silverware.

“I want to play in the big games; semi-finals, finals and at Old Trafford. We’ve set our expectations high in this camp and we know what we want to achieve, and I think we have a good chance of doing that.”

On retaining O’Brien, Giants’ coach Simon Woolford commented: “Adam O’Brien has become a leader in our group setting some great standards in training and is someone that we can definitely build around longer term in the key hooking position.

“His attitude to the hard work and sacrifices needed to be a top Super League player is exemplary and it’s good that we have got him tied down here for the foreseeable years ahead.”
