Trio set for Huddersfield exit

Nathan Peats in action for Huddersfield

Nathan Peats, Nathaniel Peteru and Olly Ashall-Bott are set to leave Huddersfield at the end of the season.

Huddersfield coach Ian Watson has confirmed that hooker Peats, prop Peteru and full-back Ashall-Bott are all set to play their last games for the Giants in Sunday’s clash with relegated Leigh.

They’ve helped us win our games so ideally we’d love to keep them but the salary cap and quota spaces will mean that might not be possible,” Watson said.

“It could be their last game and we want to send them out on a win as they have been outstanding for us.”

Huddersfield have not lost at home to Leigh since going down 22-10 at Fartown in October 1990.

Leigh’s “crazy” first season back in Super League season will come to an end in Sunday’s final game of the regular campaign at Huddersfield.

Fast-tracked at short notice to take the place of Toronto and given a smaller share of central funding than the existing clubs, the Centurions have predictably found the going tough and will be back in the Championship in 2022 after winning just two of their 21 games so far.

Both victories have come under interim boss Kurt Haggerty, who stepped into the role following the sacking of John Duffy at the start of June, and he says he has managed to enjoy the roller-coaster.

“It’s been crazy and unpredictable but I’ve loved every minute of it and learned so much in such a short space of time,” said the 32-year-old Haggerty.

“I’ve probably learned two or three years’ worth of coaching in the space of eight or nine months. It’s been manic at times, thoroughly entertaining.

“One of the biggest challenges has been getting 17 on the field, I don’t think I’ve put the same 17 out more than once or twice.”


  1. Olly Ashall Bott, should be given a chance to continue the process for improving his career with the giants. Putting in performance after performance and shown a heart of a lion.
