Huddersfield Giants have confirmed Head Coach Simon Woolford has left the club, effective immediately.
Woolford was due to leave upon the expiration of his contract at the end of the season. But both parties have agreed to move it forward to now.
Luke Robinson will be in temporary charge, and will be assisted by academy Head Coach and former West Wales Raiders Head Coach Kim Williams.
Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis said “Simon and I caught up today regarding the position and we both agreed this is best for both parties.”
“I would like to pay tribute to Simon for his professionalism and realisation of the situation once it was known he wasn’t seeking an extension and everyone here wishes him and his family every success in the future.
He returns to Australia after just over two years experience here as Head Coach and am sure will have many suitors down under for his services ”
