Huddersfield Adds Another Australian to 2017 Squad.

Huddersfield Giants have signed Illawarra Cutters forward Shannon Wakeman on a 2-year-deal.

Coach Rick Stone has been on the hunt for a replacement for Craig Huby, who signed with Wakefield on a 3-year-deal after he informed the Giants he was unhappy under new coach Rick Stone.

Wakeman, 26, will now replace Craig Huby, in Stone’s forward pack and should join the club after the christmas period.

“I’d already considered him for further down the line, but when our situation changed he was my go to guy to come across,” Giants coach Rick Stone said.

“I have seen plenty of him in action back home and he is a big mobile type of front rower.”
