Mason commits to Huddersfield

Huddersfield prop Keith Mason has become the latest Giant to sign a contract extension, which will keep him at the club until the end of 2015.

Mason, 29, has recently been out with a knee injury, but joins the likes of Luke Robinson, Kevin Brown and Eorl Crabtree in committing his future to the club.

Managing Director Richard Thewlis said: “Everyone knows Keith’s attributes and for all the players here his presence brings great confidence and there is no doubt that when he is on the field the opposition are very aware of him.

“The retention of an English player for what’s likely to be the best years as a prop should be viewed in a great light by our supporters. We do have long term recruitment and retention strategies here at the club and Keith you could say is another part of the jigsaw to fall into place.”

Mason joined the Giants in 2006 from Castleford, having previously played for Wakefield and St Helens, as well as making four appearances for Melbourne during a short spell in the NRL.

He said: “I’m delighted to have signed a long term deal with the Giants. I am very thankful for the club’s faith in me and I’m planning to reward them with some good years ahead.  There is a good nucleus of us on long term deals and it is exciting to be around quality players going forward as we strive to be successful.

“We have an awesome base here now along with a great set up and I’m just glad to be a part of the club for the next four and a half years.”
