Jul 31 2010 by Peter Barrow, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
GIANTS have agreed a one-year contract extension with 20-year-old centre Josh Griffin.
The three-quarter has been on a dual registration this year with Batley Bulldogs this season and coach Nathan Brown believes he will continue to develop and improve.
“Josh had a slow start to the year, but recently has hit a good run of form,” said Brown of the Oxford-born former Wakefield Trinity player – younger brother of Giants prop forward Darrell.
“He is a developing young player who needs to keep working hard and get himself into a position to challenge for first grade selection.
“His time at Batley has proved beneficial to his development and reports are that he’s been good for them as well in this second part of the season.”
Griffin was pleased to sign the new deal as he looks to continue his development at the club.
“Playing Championship level at Batley has definitely helped my game progress and it has improved me physically.
“I now want to continue to develop and push onto the next level with the Giants.
“There is a lot of competition for places but being part of a big squad aids my development with great advice from the senior members of the squad like Jamahl Lolesi.
“It is also great news that Nathan Brown is staying as he is a coach that you want to be around and work with.
“The Giants are definitely a big club for the future and I was pleased to sign the new deal.”
