Huddersfield Giants have signed French international halfback Theo Fages, 27, on a three-year deal from current Super League champions St Helens. With over 200 Super League games and 15 international appearances under his belt, Fages will bring a wealth of winning experience to the club. Fages started his career with Salford as a 16-year-old before making the move over to St Helens in 2016 where he has gone on to establish himself as one of the games top halfbacks.
Fages has been on the winning side in two BetFred Super League Grand finals and also won a Challenge Cup medal with Saints in 2021 and was named Captain of the French team in the 2017 World cup
Giants Head Coach Ian Watson said “Theo is a hugely significant signing for us at the Giants. He’s a player with a huge desire to win and be the best, a never say die attitude who demands the team to compete hard on every play by leading with his actions. Theo has helped take a Saints team to the very top with his desire and ability to control the game through his organisation and kicking abilities.”
“Theo along with the other players in the squad can now build a team which pushes us to a new level”
Theo Fages said “I’m really excited to get going, I just want to bring this team back to where it was, fighting for trophies, and the challenge is really exciting for me. It’s a new life for me, we will be moving here and I’m really looking forward to it. Ian Watson and everybody else wants to do really well for this team. We want to win trophies and I’ll just be giving 100% for this team”
