WAKEFIELD Trinity Wildcats have signed Kyle Wood from the Giants.
Wood, 22, has returned to the club he first joined as a teenager before heading to Doncaster where he was part of their promotion winning squad in 2008.
He then linked up with Sheffield Eagles before heading back to Super League with the Giants.
The half-back found opportunities hard to come by with the form of internationals Kevin Brown, Luke Robinson and former Wildcat Danny Brough and headed out on loan to Castleford Tigers and Batley Bulldogs.
Wood said: "At Huddersfield they’ve got a lot of good international half-backs and it’s a matter of coming here and trying to get some more game time and a regular first team place as long as I work and train hard.
“Rich (Agar) seems to give young lads a try, gets them out on the field and gives them an opportunity. You only get better with game time.
“I’ve played a couple of games here and there but I’ve found that you get better when you can play consecutive games.
“That’s what I’ve got to aim for. I want to have a good pre-season and hopefully Rich will pick me.
“I know we’re going to have a good squad next year and we can hopefully kick-on towards the play-offs.”
Wildcats coach Agar said he was looking forward to helping Wood reach his potential.
“Kyle is a player who has been learning his craft from some very talented half-backs at the Giants and he now has the opportunity to use that experience to try and establish himself in Super League,” said Agar.
“He has also had the chance to get some game time in the Championship and like all the players that we have signed for next year, he joins up with a real hunger to be successful for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
“He’s another piece in the puzzle for next season and I’m excited at what he can bring to the squad.”
