Giants sign McQueen
Huddersfield Giants have signed State of Origin forward Chris Mcqueen from Wests Tigers for the remainder of the 2021 season.
The club has a full thirteen man “team” unavailable to coach Woolford from the squad as at the resumption of play and the opportunity to add in a player of such experience at this stage of the year has been taken.
Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis said “The injury scenario is quite alarming and has caused concern to everyone thus when we heard that Chris was looking for an opportunity we jumped at the chance.

"His record speaks for itself and the agreement we have is simply to the end of the year to enable him to showcase his undoubted abilities to us and the Super League as a whole.
"He is keen to stay in the UK longer but at this stage given so many issues that we are all aware of around the game the three month trial period seems a perfect fit for everyone.
"He arrived into the UK today will watch our game live at Headingley subject to a few clearances being met but the aim is for him to be available for squad selection the week after. We should also thank the Wests Tigers club for their assistance in allowing Chris to come across and leave them early to pursue his aim of a permanent Super League contract.”
