Huddersfield Giants captain Danny Brough is predicting a bright future for club after he penned a new five-year deal with West Yorkshire outfit.
Brough has been a revelation for the Giants this season, scoring 237 points, more than any other player in Super League, and the news comes as a huge boost to Paul Anderson’s side.
The 30-year-old had offers from other clubs but says he had no hesitation in snubbing them in favour of staying with the Giants.
“I probably could have moved on but why would I want to?” Brough told the club website. “I am immensely proud to captain this club and I am certain we have some great days ahead of us.”
The half-back also says the ambition of the club convinced him to stay and he is hoping to win some silverware during the next five years.
“I have the opportunity here to win trophies, which is what we all want, and am very confident with the squad, coaches and backroom staff so the decision to stay for a long time was easy,” he added.
“I am happy with my form so far and feel that maturity is now bringing the best out of me, for which I have to thank my family and some key people at the club who have always had faith in me.
“I really hope I can play a big part in the team going forward to repay this deal with silverware for the fans and chairman.”
The Giants are one point clear of Wigan at the top of Super League with just five games remaining and will fancy their chances of hanging on to top spot.
