Huddersfield keep dual reg with Oldham

Huddersfield and Oldham will again be dual-registration partners in the 2017 season.

It will be the third year in a row that Roughyeds have linked up with the Giants, but the first time that such a partnership has been forged since Australian coach Rick Stone succeeded Paul Anderson as boss of the Super League outfit last July.

Oldham spent 2013 and 2014 in partnership with Salford Red Devils.

Oldham coach Scott Naylor said: “Since the end of last season I’ve been over to Huddersfield for a few meetings with Rick (Stone) and they’ve all been positive and productive.

“They have a similar system to dual-reg in Australia and he’s very aware of the mutual benefits to be derived from it. He’s a big fan of it, in fact.

“I’ve every reason to believe that we will benefit from it even more than previously.”

Olham chairman Chris Hamilton said: “We look forward to working with the Giants again and in particular with Rick, as a relative newcomer to the English game.

“We’re hoping that, in terms of players who will be available to us, we’ll really see the benefits.

“We had other options open to us this year in terms of partnering different clubs, but we happily pumped for the Giants because it has worked superbly for us in the past.”
