Craig Kopczak: Has opted to join Huddersfield Giants
Wales captain Craig Kopczak has agreed a three-year deal with the Huddersfield Giants.
The 25-year-old prop was a free agent after terminating his contract at Bradford Bulls ahead of the final game of last season.
And Kopczak has now followed Brett Ferres, Ukuma Ta'ai, Stuart Fielden, Ben Blackmore, Shaun Lunt and Anthony Mullally is signing for the Giants.
"Huddersfield have been top-four material for the past few years and the chance to work with (coach) Paul Anderson for me as a fellow prop was too good to miss out on," he told the club's official site.
"I have been fed up reading many of the comments attributed to my decision to simply look after my family's best interest and we are all happy that this is now behind us and we can move forward in a Giants shirt next season.
"I went through the squad yesterday with my manager and it's going to be an exciting year for the Giants with lots of new signings in there and definitely lots of size.
"I see no reason at all why we can't be challenging at the very top and for me I want a massive year to lead into the World Cup."
