DAVID FA’ALOGO has left the Giants.
The 32-year-old former New Zealand Test back-row forward (right) played his last Huddersfield game in Sunday’s bitterly-disappointing 46-10 play-off defeat at Hull FC.
It brought the curtain down on his three-year Giants stay, with the Super League club having confirmed he hasn’t been offered a new contract.
That’s also the case for hooker Scott Moore. who joined on loan from Widnes in mid-season until the end of the year, and fringe squad member Ross Peltier.
At the same time, utility man Tommy Lee and prop Adam Walker are also to leave the John Smith’s Stadium.
Lee was offered a contract, but has rejected the terms and chosen to explore the market, with Super League rivals London Broncos believed to be showing a keen interest.
In the case of Walker, he has also rejected a new contract, with the club having invoked RFL regulations which stipulate any club acquiring his services pay a compensation fee equivalent to the six years’ development the club have put into him.
Meanwhile, second-row forward Brett Ferres was suspended for one match after he was found guilty of committing a grade B dangerous lift on hooker Danny Houghton during his side’s 46-10 play-off defeat at Hull on Sunday.
