Huddersfield Giants have confirmed that Kyle Wood and Josh Johnson have left the Club
The club announced today that the duo will not be part of the club’s 2017 Super League squad via their website
“In the case of Josh, we offered him a very good contract and one that would have significantly increased his salary last year as well as going forward, so it was particularly disappointing to everyone here that he chose to move on,” explained Giants managing director Richard Thewlis.
“We were talking to him since the beginning of the season, but in reality I don’t think we ever got close to the valuation which he was seeking and we wish him well for the future.
“We are fortunate in the prop area to have younger players Tyler Dickinson and Matthew English who now get closer to a top 25 squad place after Josh’s departure.
“In respect of Kyle, he has an excellent opportunity elsewhere (although that has yet to be announced) which he has taken and we wish him well. He suffered a number of injuries during his time with us but always battled back and was a popular member of the squad.”
