Warrington winger Gene Ormsby has today joined the Giants on loan and could make his debut at Hull FC on Friday.
The 23-year-old, who has earned a reputation for scoring spectacular tries and can play on the wing or at centre, made his debut for The Wire in 2014 and in his 37 appearances has scored 24 tries.
Ormsby’s arrival will give head coach Paul Anderson another useful backline option as the bottom-of-the-table Giants head to the KC Stadium later this week looking to secure what would be just their second Super League success from 10 starts.
And Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis believes the one-month deal is a good piece of business for his club.
“With Jordan Tansey having returned to Wakefield the opportunity for another outside back to come into the squad was there, and we are grateful for Warrington in allowing Gene the opportunity to get some game time in Super League,” said Thewlis.
“As with the terms of Jordan’s loan, the player is not permitted to play against his parent club (Warrington are at the John Smith’s Stadium on Friday week), but Gene is available for our games versus Hull FC, Wigan and Leeds and will join the Huddersfield squad tomorrow for training.”
