Huddersfield in contention to sign ‘marquee player’

Are Huddersfield going to be the latest club to use the marquee player rule?

Word coming from League Express is that the Giants are keen to sign Newcastle Knights halfback Jarrod Mullen for next season as they revamp their squad.

Mullen, who previously played under Giants head coach Rick Stone at the Knights, has been linked with an exit from Newcastle in the Australian media in the last couple of months as the NRL’s bottom side prepare for a major overhaul of their squad.

And Stone is keen to make the most of Mullen’s availability by making him his marquee signing for his first season at Huddersfield.
