Ian Watson has made his first overseas signing as Huddersfield coach in the shape of Australian half-back Jack Cogger on a two-year deal.
The 23-year-old has made 42 NRL appearances to date for Newcastle Knights and Canterbury Bulldogs, scoring four tries.
Huddersfield coach Ian Watson said: “Jack Cogger gives us great competition in the spine of the team.
“He’s a no-nonsense rugby player with a great kicking game and a level of experience at the NRL level with Newcastle and Canterbury and he’s played with top quality players, so coming alongside Lee Gaskell and Aidan Sezer, he’ll be used to playing with top quality. He adds to the strength in depth and the quality we have here at Huddersfield.”
