Huddersfield Giants star Oliver Roberts has signed a new 5-year deal with the Huddersfield Giants

Huddersfield Giants are delighted to announce that Oliver Roberts has signed a new deal with the Claret and Gold, keeping him at the club until at least 2023.

The 23-year-old forward, who shone for the Giants in the Betfred Super League 2017 and for Ireland at the Rugby League World Cup, spoke of his delight to commit at the John Smith’s Stadium:

“I’m really happy. When I came back from Australia I had a bit of interest from other clubs however I like it here, I enjoy the boys. I enjoy the staff, I love the club and I love where it’s going. I want to be here and be a part of that. I had no temptation to go anywhere else.”

“It’s a good club. The boys are good, the staff’s good. I see this club going in the right ways. Rick Stone is going the right way and doing good stuff, I can see us winning trophies and that’s why I want to be here.

“Signing a new five-year deal doesn’t mean I’m sitting on the back burner; I’m not smoking no cigar. I want to be cracking on. I want to keep playing and I have a lot of goals which I want to achieve personally. This doesn’t mean that I’m secure now, I want to try and secure a new deal. Nothing is ever enough and you can’t be satisfied with what you’ve already got.”

Giants Head Coach, Rick Stone, was delighted to see Roberts sign a new deal and commented:

“I think it’s a good thing for us and for Ollie. Good quality players are hard to find and when you’ve brought someone of that quality through from a young age then we’d obviously like to keep them. He’s still got a little bit to learn and he’ll be the first to admit that but he’s a prospect that can hopefully be a great player here for a long time.

“He brings a line-break ability, he carries the ball well, he’s hard to put down and can score a try. He’s a handful to the opposition but he’s still working on becoming an 80 minute back-rower and is becoming better every week. I’d like to think that we’ll continue to see that improvement in him for the next couple of years.
