Jamie Ellis wants regular starting spot at Huddersfield

New Huddersfield signing Jamie Ellis is relishing pre-season training with the Giants and insists he is targeting a regular starting spot in Paul Anderson’s side next season.

The former Castleford utility, who was signed to give the likes of Danny Brough, Luke Robinson and Shaun Lunt competition, admits training has been difficult so far.

“Pre-season has been pretty tough so far but I am really enjoying it,” he said.

“We have been doing a lot of running and wrestling work so far and we have got more running and wrestling to come this week. It is similar training to what I have done at other clubs before but it has been really good.

“We are also doing plenty of weights work too. It is hard work but it is definitely going to be worth it in the long run for us.

“I had a good four weeks off before we started training. I didn’t go on holiday because I just wanted to get myself prepared before I started here. I could not wait to start training at the club.

“They are all really good lads here. All of them have been really good to me so far and I’ve already made some friends here. I’m really enjoying being here.

“I’m just looking to get my head down and train hard. There are a lot of good players here and it is a big club so there is nothing guaranteed.

“I am looking to get a starting spot in the team but I know that I have got to train hard and then play well when I’m given the chance.

“Huddersfield is a really good club with high ambitions. We have been a top four club for the past couple of years now. We have got a lot of really good players here and to play alongside top quality players like Danny Brough will be a really good experience for me.”
