Leeds have signed Huddersfield prop Anthony Mullally on a three-year deal for next season.
Mullally, 23, joined the Giants from Widnes in 2013 and has also played on loan at Bradford, as well as representing Ireland.
He said: “It is great to have agreed a three year contract with a club like the Rhinos with all the success they have had over recent years. Huddersfield have been very good to me so I wanted to make sure that I got the process finalised as quickly as possible.
“I have spoken to a number of people who know the Rhinos club and everything I have heard is very positive and I am looking forward to being part of that culture. Once 1st May came round and I could speak to other clubs, I was keen to get my future sorted so I can focus on the remainder of my time with Huddersfield until the end of the season.”
Mullally came through the academy ranks at hometown club Widnes, making his debut at the age of 17 against Saddleworth in the Challenge Cup. He made 10 appearances for the Vikings in their first season back in Super League in 2012, and then moved on to the Giants, where he has made 33 appearances.
Rhinos coach Brian McDermott said: “We are pleased to have secured a player with the potential that Anthony has. We have seen first hand the impact he can have on a game and I am looking forward to working with him from next season.”
