Eorl Crabtree to reach major milestone for Giants this weekend

Huddersfield Giants’ iconic prop forward Eorl Crabtree will make his 350th Club appearance if selected to play in the Heritage Celebration Game at the John Smith’s Stadium this Sunday 30th March (KO 3pm) against Warrington Wolves.

Eorl made his debut for the Claret and Gold against London Broncos on 13th April 2001 and had his testimonial year in 2010 and admitted he wouldn’t dream of playing for another Club:

“I can’t imagine playing for any other Club than Huddersfield. It’s an obvious thing to say but it just doesn’t feel right thinking about it.

“I’ve been part of an incredible transformation at this Club and I’ve been a part of it for the past 15 years. It’s going to be a proud moment for me.

“I’ve certainly got 400 appearances in my sights and then who knows. We won the League Leaders Shield last year which was fantastic but our focus is now on winning a major trophy.”
