Huddersfield are a “top-class team”, says new signing Ormsby

New Huddersfield Giants signing Gene Ormsby believes he has joined a “top-class team” after penning a loan deal with the Super League strugglers.

Ormsby has joined Huddersfield on a one-month loan deal, and is expected to make his debut in Friday’s trip to Hull after being included in Paul Anderson’s initial 19-man squad.

And the winger says that he’s delighted to get the opportunity to play some first-team rugby on a regular basis again, saying he’s excited by the challenge that lies ahead.

“I’m really looking forward to it and I’m really excited to be playing some rugby and getting some games under my belt,” said Ormsby.

“This is a top-class team and that’s why I wanted to come here. I think that I can offer something and with the kind of club that Huddersfield are, I think it’s a great loan move for me and I can learn a lot from being here and from the players that are already here.”

Ormsby has struggled for opportunities with Kevin Penny and Tom Lineham in such fine form this season for the Wolves, but he insists he’s ready to go after getting some game-time in the new reserve league.

“I’ve played a couple of reserve games for Warrington this season so I feel like I’m ready to go and get in there and do a job straight away, if I’m selected,” he said.

“My aim is to play some good Rugby League whilst I’m here and hopefully we can help each other out.”
