Huddersfield Giants have confirmed the signing of centre Ricky Leutele for the 2021 Super League Season.
The centre comes with an incredible reputation in the game making over 150 first team appearances with Cronulla Sharks, Toronto Wolfpack and 2020 NRL Grand Finalists Melbourne Storm.
Leutele told GiantsTV: “I’m very excited to be joining the club and I can’t wait to get over. It feels awesome to have signed for the Giants.
“I spoke to Ian Watson the other night about the direction he wants to take the team and the club, what Ian described to me is something I want to be a part of, and I can’t wait to rip in with the boys. Hopefully, I can bring my ‘A’ game and just be the best version of me when I’m playing for the Giants”
Giants Head Coach Ian Watson added: “Ricky is an outstanding signing for us at Giants which myself and Richard have been working hard on for a few weeks now so we’re delighted & looking forward to welcoming Ricky AND his family to the Giants in 2021.
“He comes to us with a reputation of a person with outstanding character and a winner at the Highest level with numerous finals appearances and a grand final winner with Cronulla in their 2016 GF win.
“Ricky showed glimpses of his ability with his performances at Toronto last season and in his move to Melbourne Storm where he looked in phenomenal condition. He’ll certainly increase the quality and competitive depth in our outstanding back line and will be a player to watch in super league in 2021.”
