20 year old Academy graduate, Sam Wood has signed a new contract with Huddersfield Giants which will keep him at the John Smith’s Stadium until the end of 2021.

Wood, who scored six tries in nine games in 2017, penned the extended deal and spoke of his delight at signing the deal:

“I’ve been really enjoying my time at Huddersfield so I’m happy to commit myself and move forward. They’ve brought me all the way through and I’m looking forward to developing as a player.

“It’s a good environment under Rick Stone and I’ve learnt a lot with Chris Thorman and Luke Robinson. I just want to keep developing and playing.

“I'm always happy to be on the field and scoring is a bonus but just to get on the field and perform well week in week out is important to me. I’ve had a good pre-season and hopefully I’ll get an opportunity to kick on this year.

“I’ve just got to be ready to play. I’ve been training and working hard and I’m ready to go if needed. I want to just take it week by week and get in that 17 week in, week out.”

Head Coach Rick Stone spoke of his pleasure of securing Wood’s services:

“Sam offered a lot last year when he played. He played a few games the year before and he’s improved his physicality this year. He’ll make a bit of a difference when he plays and hopefully the fans will see a new and improved Sam Wood then he was physically last season.

“He’s knocking on the door. He’s around about the mark and he’s had a knee injury which put him back a little bit but he’s trained really well and any time he’s on the pitch he’s trying to improve himself.

“He fits in very well and understands the culture very well. His attitude is always great, whether he’s in the team or not, he’s tremendous and he’s a popular member of the squad. Hopefully he’ll be a Giant for a long time to come.”
