Ferguson heads for Giants exit

5th August 2019, 11:00 by Tom McGarry

Huddersfield Giants have confirmed that second-row Dale Ferguson has left the club with immediate effect.

The 31-year-old returned for his second spell at the John Smith's Stadium in 2017 and he has gone on to make 32 appearances for the Super League club, although only one of those outings came this season.

Indeed, Ferguson, who has represented Scotland 13 times at international level, has spent much of the current campaign on loan at Championship club Featherstone Rovers and it has now been decided that he will leave Huddersfield in order to continue his career elsewhere.

Giants managing director Richard Thewlis confirmed the news on the club's website, saying: "Dale has been an outstanding player and person at our club and for his country.

"The sad reality though is that his game time and availability has not been where either party would wish and its with sadness we have come to this announcement."

Ferguson previously made 59 appearances for the Giants during his first spell with the club between 2011 and 2013, while he also counts Wakefield Trinity and Bradford Bulls among his list of former teams.
