Giants hold talks with Danny Tickle

Huddersfield Giants have held discussions with Danny Tickle about a move to the club.

Paul Anderson confirmed to TotalRL that the club had been in contact with Tickle and his representatives following his release from Widnes earlier this month.

The Giants have yet to replace Brett Ferres, the England back-row that moved to Leeds Rhinos just before the beginning of the season.

With the Giants bottom of Super League, and with space available on the salary cap, Anderson revealed that the club is in talks to bring the 32-year-old to the club.

“There is some interest in there, I’d be lying if I said no,” he told TotalRL.

“But we’ve got to make sure that everything is right on that.

“We’ve got an opportunity to do things. We need some men if I’m being honest. We’ve got a lot of young fellas in there, they are what they are and are only going to get better, but what we need at the moment is some good, old-head experience that gives our halves and backs something to play with.”

Tickle has been linked with Huddersfield before. In 2010, the Giants were thought to be interested in his services before he signed a new deal with former club Hull FC.

Huddersfield travel to Castleford on Sunday in search of their first victory in four matches.
