Raleigh seals Huddersfield switch
Huddersfield
Huddersfield have completed the signing of Andy Raleigh from Hull Kingston Rovers for next season.

The 24-year-old back rower, who has scored 17 tries in 30 appearances for Hull KR this campaign, has signed a two-year deal.

"He is a big, strong athletic player who has been one of the form players in the National Leagues over the past few seasons," said Giants coach Jon Sharp.

"He is looking forward to making the step up and he has a great future."

Raleigh joined Hull KR in November last year and says he is determined to leave the club on a high.

"It was a tough decision to move on as Hull KR have been great with me and I am determined to leave with a Grand Final winners medal with them," he said.

"This move though was something that I felt I must do and with the set up at Huddersfield, the coaching structures and facilities, I decided that it was the right place for me.

Raleigh was born in Huddersfield and has played for the Giants Academy as well as Great Britain Students.
