Holdsworth seals NRL return


8th November 2013

Former Salford Red Devils and Hull FC stand-off Daniel Holdsworth has completed a return to the NRL by joining Cronulla, three days after being formally released by the Black and Whites.

The 29-year-old Australian, who secured a release from the last year of his contract with Hull on personal grounds, has signed a 12-month deal with the Sharks, where he is expected to provide back-up to regular half-backs Todd Carney and Jeff Robson.

"I'm really happy," Holdsworth said. "It's a great club and it's nice and close to home.

"I watched most of Sharks' games this year. They've got a great squad and I'm happy to be in the mix."

Holdsworth, who began training with his new club this week, started his NRL career at St George Illawarra in 2004 and also played for Canterbury Bulldogs before moving to Super League with Salford in 2010.
