Huddersfield Giants hooker Adam O’Brien has signed a new two-year deal with the John Smith’s Stadium side.

The new deal will see the 28-year-old contracted until the end of the 2024 Super League season.

He has made 105 appearances for the Giants since arriving in 2017.

O’Brien, born in Halifax, began his career at Bradford and made his first team debut in 2011. He made the move to the Giants in 2017.

Adam O’Brien delighted to stay

O’Brien said: “I’m buzzing. It’s been a tough two years. I’m back on the field now enjoying my rugby and the club’s come and offered me a two-year deal. I’m happy to stay at the club for the next two years.

“The staff and everyone at the club have had faith in me. They’ve given me game time and I’m back on the field enjoying my rugby and now I’ve got a two-year deal to stick around and I’m looking forward to what’s to come”

“You always look to have a strong squad, through pre-season and into the season. Everyone has got to be on their toes, be a top performer week in, week out because there are always people wanting starting spots in this side.”

Head coach Ian Watson added: “Adam O’Brien is a great team member and a good individual to have around the squad. He’s always been a positive influence for the team and is 100% committed to helping us build the right mentality.

“We’re delighted to have him with us for an extra two years. We hope that he continues to perform at the levels he has shown over the last few weeks against Wigan and Catalans. He is a positive role-model for the rest of the squad and the club and typifies the consistency we want at the Huddersfield Giants.”
