Aidan Sezer appointed Giants Captain

Huddersfield Giants can announce Aidan Sezer has been awarded the captaincy for the 2020 Season.

Simon Woolford has confirmed that Aidan Sezer has been appointed Huddersfield Giants captain for the 2020 Season. The half-back joined the club in the off-season after leading Canberra to their first NRL Grand Final in 25 years.

Woolford said: "He’s our on field general and that’s what we bought him here for. Since we brought him in, the impact on the group has been amazing and has made him the natural candidate. He’s a leader on and off the field - which is vital when considering your captain

"I had a good chat with Leroy and he supports the decision. He wants to focus on getting fit to play and recovering to make an impact in 2020 and we both felt that he didn't need the distraction of the captaincy"

Aidan Sezer, Giants Captain said: "I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to captain the Giants and have the belief from a great bunch of lads and the coaching staff.

“I feel being a good captain takes selflessness and performance. With these two attributes you can lead effectively.”

“I’m now excited about the year ahead, relishing the prospect of being halfback and captain at the Giants, hopefully I can do the badge proud and we as a club can have a good 2020.”
