Huddersfield Giants managing director Richard Thewlis says the club has had a season of transition and progression and he’s backing head coach Ian Watson to build a side to challenge for silverware next season.

Watson, who joined Huddersfield at the beginning of 2021, has had a tough first season with injuries and the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on his squad.

However Thewlis has backed the Giants to improve next term and said: “The 2022 Betfred Super League season will be a pivotal one in the relatively short history of Super League and its our firm goal to be right at the top end of the table challenging for honours. 

“We backed Ian Watson in his first year in respect of changes to both our staffing and playing personnel and that process has continued with a number of exciting signings already announced.

“The journey under Ian Watson is clearly progressive, taking shape nicely and will present us all with an exciting 2022 I’m sure.

“We are also investing in the off field facilities available to our players which will tick off another box in respect of giving every player the best opportunity to be the best player that they can be here at Huddersfield.”

Huddersfield Giants announce new season ticket offer.

The Giants have announced a number of key player signings recently, including Chris Hill and Nathan Mason who join from Warrington and Leigh respectively. The club has also retained Josh Jones, Michael Lawrence and Leroy Cudjoe. 

Watson recently spoke to the Huddersfield Giants supporters’ group via Zoom and believes the Giants academy is one of the best. Thewlis mirrored those comments and said: “Our academy had another good year and at least one player from that group will move up into Ian’s squad whilst others may be retained for the new reserves competition next year which will present a new challenge to us.” 

The Giants have announced a new season ticket deal for next year. They are offering supporters the most competitively priced ticket in Super League at £125 for over 30s and £65 for under 30s.

Thewlis was delighted that the club have been able to offer another amazing deal and said: “The success of the season card campaign is of critical importance to the club.

“We have kept our prices incredibly competitive with all levels of rugby (let alone Super League) to reflect the times we are in and the need for more supporters to sign up to become members.

“Our message to the supporters today though is to renew your season cards at the earliest possible opportunity and bring as many along with you as you can. 

“All the staff here are available to any supporter to talk with and help should they have any queries in respect of the cards and the online facility has been tried and tested to ensure smooth transition from enquiry to sale.”
