Robinson commits to Huddersfield

Luke Robinson has penned a new deal at Huddersfield to keep him with the club until the end of 2017.

Robinson, 30, has made 201 appearances for the Giants since arriving from Salford in 2007.

He said: “It’s dead easy really. I want to win something here and I know we can do it. We’ve been really close but not made the last step but overall since I came we’ve gone forwards massively. 

“I am very happy here and to do ten years will be a proud achievement and one I’m grateful that I’ve a chance at. I don’t want to look back at my time here and say I was involved in building towards trophies – I want to be able to say I won trophies and I want more than the 2013 League Leaders Shield. 

“At the moment I am training at nine and seven and I’ll just do whatever Baloo (Paul Anderson) thinks is best for the team and give it my best shot.

“We definitely have the squad and the new facilities we are now based have given everyone a real lift as have the new faces in the squad.”

Robinson came through the Wigan academy, and also had a spell on loan at Castleford.

Giants Managing Director, Richard Thewlis, added: “Luke was a marquee signing for us along with David Hodgson back in 2007 as we started back then to really invest in the squad with top class young English lads on the back of the Cup Final appearance.

“He has given tremendous commitment and brought class to the club on and off the field with each of his three head coaches praising his toughness, and having taken us to our second cup final and into the play offs in every year bar one as well as representing England, he has for me, cemented his place as one of Huddersfield modern day greats.

“One of our goals here is to make memories and enable this group to stand alongside some of our tremendous teams of the past with silverware and I know that Luke Robinson deserves that accolade having seen day in day out his commitment to our club.”
