Huddersfield Giants young Centre Sam Wood is to join The Bulldogs on a season long loan.

The 21 year old is a graduate of the Giants Academy Scholarship programme and has made a number of Super League appearances this season against opposition including Wigan, Warrington and St. Helens. This came on the back of the 2017 campaign where Sam scored 6 Tries in 9 first team games for Huddersfield.

In a similar agreement to that which saw Izaac Farrell spend 2018 at Batley, the player will be a permanent member of Matt Diskin’s squad.

Welcome to Batley Sam!!
