Giants secure Huge Signing as Watson continues to build for 2023

Oct 17, 2022

Huddersfield Giants are delighted to welcome back Jake Connor for the 2023 Betfred Super League season on a three-year deal. The 27-year-old International Full Back/Stand Off returns to his hometown club after a stellar time on Humberside where he won a Challenge Cup and last season topped the Super League assist charts. A full interview will be available next week on with the new signing explaining how the deal came about and his targets and ambitions for next year. 

Jake Connor said “I’m absolutely buzzing to be coming back. Although it wasn’t an easy decision it’s definitely the right one for me and my family. I feel like I’ve got some unfinished business at the club and I’ve got some old mates here that I can’t wait to catch up with. 

“I’m really looking forward to working under Ian Watson and also Luke Robinson who I know well. I’ve played against Ian’s sides on numerous occasions and they’re always well drilled. We’ve got a good squad and a good structure and I can’t wait to be a part of it and enjoy my rugby.

Giants Head Coach Ian Watson said “I’d like to welcome Jake back to the Giants he is a huge signing for us. Jake is a player I have admired from afar, and is a tough competitor who wants to win at all costs and will drive people in his team to be better and want more.

“Last year we were the 4th best attack in Super League and hopefully adding Jake into our team can propel us to score even more points while maintaining our defensive mentality.

“This is a great moment for Huddersfield to get back one of our own players and a lot of credit should go to Richard and Ken for working so hard to get this deal through.”
