Eden, 22, starred in the Giants’ win over Leeds on Friday which saw them return to the top of the Super League table, and he was compared to the Australia and Melbourne full-back in the post-match press conference.
He told the club’s official website: “It’s really good to hear something like that, it just gives me a huge boost in confidence. I look up to Billy Slater and he’s obviously a very good player, I’m delighted to be named in any comparison to him.
“It’s really going well so far. When I first came here I didn’t expect to be playing at all, so every game is a bonus for me.”
He then made the switch to the Galpharm Stadium in the close season, signing a two year deal, and he has appeared at full back in all but one of Huddersfield’s nine Super League games to date.
