Robbie Hunter-Paul leaves Giants

Huddersfield Business Development manager Robbie Hunter-Paul has asked for an early release from his contract of employment, which has been granted.
Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis that the 37-year-old had an opportunity too good to turn down:
“Robbie has a wonderful opportunity elsewhere that as I see it is too good for him to refuse. He has, as I would expect for someone with his integrity and standing within the game, kept me fully in the loop as regards his situation and he leaves with my very best wishes for the future.
“It is nice when our employees are recognised outside of the club and sought after as it shows what a good job they are perceived to be doing. This announcement today also gives our supporters the chance on Friday evening so say their goodbyes to Robbie on what will be both his last matchday and working day with us.
“His future path has been speculated upon and I am sure that in the next day or so we will all see him reappear so to speak and I wish him well. He will always be well received back here at the John Smith’s Stadium.”
Hunter-Paul said: “It’s with some sadness that I leave and I have to thank everyone throughout the club for helping me have such a wonderful time when I came back after finishing playing.
“It’s been a great experience for me and I now know and have seen first-hand how incredibly hard the Giants staff work to benefit the club.
“It’s a club that deserves more support both in the stands and commercially and I have seen and been involved in some great initiatives that I am sure will bear fruit in the longer term.
“I wish the Giants nothing but success but an opportunity has arisen that may never do so again and I have decided to move on. I thank the club for allowing me to leave earlier than I envisaged and I am looking forward to Friday evening when hopefully I will see as many Giants as possible on the evening.
“My future plans are set as Richard says but I’d like to leave here in the proper manner first of all and then turn my attentions elsewhere.”
It is expected that the Kiwi’s destination will be another former club from his playing days, as he is being strongly linked with a return to Bradford Bulls.
