Biography

Martyn Ridyard was signed on loan from Leigh Centurions in May 2017 and adds experience to the halves.

Ridyard was a key player in helping Leigh achieve promotion to the Betfred Super League in the 2016 season, becoming the club's top points scorer for the fifth consecutive season along the way.

With over 200 appearances for Leigh and more than 75 career tries, Ridyard is a well-rounded half-back with strong attacking capabilities and a dangerous kick.

Ridyard joined the Giants on loan from Leigh Centurions originally on a one month arrangement. 

After making his Claret & Gold debut in the Magic Weekend victory over Catalans, Ridyard has gone from strength to strength forming an impressive half back partnership with Danny Brough along with displaying precision goal kicking skills. 

Ridyard has extended his loan deal until the end of the season but is currently recovering from a shoulder injury sustained in the 19 all draw against Wigan.
