Ridyard joins Giants on loan

Huddersfield have confirmed the loan signing of experienced half-back Martyn Ridyard from Leigh Centurions.

Ridyard has made over 200 appearances for Leigh and played a key role in their promotion winning season in 2016.

Giants’ boss Rick Stone said: “I know Martyn – he’s an experienced playmaker and he’s been around a long while.

“He’s shown that he can run a team and move a team around the park, he’s got a good kicking game and obviously he was one of the influential parts of getting Leigh into the top grade last year when they went through the Middle 8s.

“So obviously he’s handled pressure pretty well, he’s keen for an opportunity and we need a half-back so it’s a good fit for both parties.

“He’s an experienced player with a bit to prove to himself and maybe a few other people and we need someone of that ilk to help us right now.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and there’s a fair chance he’ll play for us next time we play at the Dacia Magic Weekend.

“He’s got to have a bit of a crash course by the time we get going next week to get himself ready.”
