Huddersfield Giants prop Eorl Crabtree is hoping he and new signing Craig Huby will form a devastating front-row partnership in 2015.
The 32-year-old believes he was overworked last season due to a lack of depth in the forwards, but the arrival of Huby, as well as Jack Hughes and Oliver Roberts, should keep him fresher next year.
“I’m really excited we’ve signed Craig Huby,” Crabtree said.
“[He’s] a great talent and will help us out massively up front, which is great news for me.
“It was pretty tough at times for me last season, but I know Craig will help in that respect next year.
“He’s got some great hands for a prop, and I’d like to think that together we can form a very effective partnership.
“I know we’ll be able to give it everything during our time on the field, because we’ve got quality front-row back-up.”
