Highly-rated young prop Olly Wilson has signed a new deal that will see him stay at Huddersfield until at least the end of the 2027 season.

The 22-year-old has made 53 appearances the Giants since arriving from Bradford in 2019. He has been named in the England Knights squad this year.

Giants coach Ian Watson said: “Ollie, at 22, is one of our most talented and emerging players within our squad who had a huge season this year.

“He’s great player with huge potential and has developed significantly over the last two years.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him and seeing him improve his game over the next four years to nail down a permanent place in the 17; and hopefully progress to a future international front-rower.”

He said: “It’s great to sign my new contract with Huddersfield.

“The Giants gave me my first shot in the Betfred Super League when I was 19. There were some tough years coming up as a young middle and I’ve had to learn. But I feel like this year, as a team and individually, I’ve come on leaps and bounds. I am buzzing to re-sign.

“Obviously you want to secure a starting spot each week with other individual goals. But the focus is on winning things, I feel like we are looking towards competing for finals now consistently, and in these next four years I’m sure we can pick up some wins in those big games.”

Wilson played in Huddersfield’s 16-14 defeat to Wigan in the Challenge Cup final at Tottenham earlier this year. The Giants then went on to secure a place in the Super League play-offs.
