Mason signs Giants contract extension

Nathan Mason has put pen-to-paper on a contract extension at Huddersfield Giants to keep him at the club until the end of the 2018 season. 

The 22 year-old has been catching the eye in Paul Anderson‘s team this season with a string of impressive individual performances in a team that has struggled for consistency in 2016. 

This year has been his real breakthrough year with the club following his debut over three years ago, and Paul Anderson has admitted his form this year warranted the contract extension.

“Nathan deserves a chance here to continue his development and he is a good example for the younger lads to look up as he demonstrates a genuine development path into the Super League team,” he said.

“He has come through our systems and this year really pushed his nose into consideration for the top side. He is naturally a big man and will probably get bigger with age and the continued benefit of training alongside the proper nutrition programme. Game wise he is like many aspiring players of his age in that he needs to play regularly against good opposition.”

Mason himself has already expressed his happiness at being able to extend his stay at the John Smith’s stadium.

“I am obviously happy to be staying at the club and I hope that I can establish myself as a regular in the first team,” he said.

“I have always been at Huddersfield since signing professionally and as we as Paul as Head Coach who played my position I am lucky that the senior props such as Eorl, Sam and Craig have helped and encouraged me – especially this year when I’ve played far more first grade than before.

“I know we still have lots to do as a team this year to get where we want to be but I’m glad I’ve been playing and hope that continues and our form continues to get better.”
