Huddersfield Giants chairman Ken Davy believes Danny Brough has earned the right to be described as one of Huddersfield Rugby League Club’s greatest-ever players.
The inspirational club captain was this week officially named the world’s best stand-off at the Rugby League International Federation annual awards dinner in Manchester.
Brough scooped the award just a month after being named the Super League Man of Steel.
He helped Huddersfield secure their first top-of-the-table finish in 81 years.
And proud chairman Davy believes that makes the 30-year-old one of the greatest ever to have worn the claret and gold.
“What Danny has achieved, not just for himself but for the team, has been outstanding,” said the Giants owner.
“I know this club has boasted many great players in the past and will boast great players in the future.
“But after helping Huddersfield finish top for the first time in 81 years and having just been named the world’s best stand-off, it would be hard to argue that Danny is not one of this club’s greatest ever players.
“He’s outstanding in everything he does, and I know he’ll lead us again by example in 2014.”
