“I just want to be able to go out there and do well for the boys and hopefully achieve something, including building on the success of last season.”

Head Coach Chris Chester said, “He is a top quality player, I cannot thank the Huddersfield Club enough, and Michael Carter for the work he has put in over the last seven days. Craig (Huby) is a great acquisition for the club and he gives us plenty of depth and competition to what is already a strong pack.

“I am starting to get very excited now, we just need the people of Wakefield to get behind us this season, it is a real show of intent from the club, he is a great player and certainly someone I am looking forward to working with in the future.”

Chairman, Michael Carter commented, “I am really pleased to get Craig over the line. When we heard that he was possibly available, we acted quickly to try and entice Craig to our club. The fact that Craig was keen to come to us spoke volumes.

“I would like to thank Richard Thewlis and the Huddersfield club for their understanding in making this deal happen smoothly. Wakefield and Huddersfield have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship over the last two years and both clubs share similar views on the current game.

“Finally, I am genuinely excited by the squad we have put together for 2017. What we need now, is more fans to back what we are trying to achieve by purchasing their memberships, lottery lines and merchandise. We have a great opportunity to take that next step and, together, we need to grasp it with both hands.”
