Huddersfield forward Joe Greenwood has signed a new deal that will see him remain with the Giants until at least the end of 2025.

The 29-year-old has made 48 appearances for the Giants since arriving from Wigan in 2021. He helped Ian Watson’s side reach the Challenge Cup final earlier this year.

Greenwood said: “I’m over the moon with it to be honest with the season we had last year you can see where the Giants are heading under the coaching staff and Watto.

“I am really enjoying it, we’re getting a load of recruits in with a vast amount of experience so it’s really good to be a part of it and to be a part of the Giants for the next three years.

“Being successful comes down to the personnel with people who have that experience and bringing through the young kids from Huddersfield as well, and with us getting into the play-offs and a Cup final it all adds to the squads experience, but what I’ve learnt is that the players with that experience are the ones who stand up and so the more we have as a group the closer we will get.”

Huddersfield boss delighted to keep hold of Joe Greenwood

Former England international Greenwood has made more than 200 career appearances for St Helens, Gold Coast Titans, Wigan and Huddersfield.

Giants coach Ian Watson said: “Joe has been a tremendous signing for Huddersfield. He has formed part of a core that has led the team and its culture in 2022.

“We’re delighted to extend his stay with the club. He’s versatile and can play back or front-row, and is a proven winner adding to the experience within the squad.

“His attitude on both sides of the ball is a pivotal asset for the team’s play. He’s made great strides in 2022 and is one of our key performers.”
