Brown to stay with Giants

Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown has signed a one-year contract extension to remain at the Galpharm Stadium.

Brown, 37, had been heavily linked to a return to the NRL at the end of his current three-year deal, having initially requested to leave at the end of last season.

However, the Australian decided to see out the third year of his contract, but has now agreed to stay on for 2012, ending months of speculation.

Giants managing director Richard Thewlis said: “This will be viewed as great news by everyone connected with our club and a wonderful fillip for us all as we enter the second half of the season sitting second in Super League and still in the Challenge Cup.

“Our progress under Nathan has been excellent and to have him as our head coach for a further season is simply marvellous.”

The Giants have recently tied up a raft of their current squad to new contracts, including Danny Brough, Luke Robinson and Kevin Brown.

Thewlis added: “We have respected his wishes in making this decision in his own time as it’s a big call for him to make but we are naturally delighted that he remains here with his family in West Yorkshire.

“We can all now knuckle down to our respective tasks in the knowledge that we have a man at the helm who we all feel here can bring silverware to this great club which is our objective.

“I am sure that the fans will show their appreciation to Nathan and his family in the coming weeks ahead and like them look forward to watching his team evolve and improve as we progress this and now next year too.”
