Ormsby not concerned about joining struggling Huddersfield

Gene Ormsby believes it would have been ‘narrow-minded’ to not join Huddersfield because of their poor season.

The winger made his first appearance for the club since joining on a permanent basis from Warrington, having impressed during a short loan spell at the club earlier this season.

With Huddersfield now bottom of Super League following their defeat to St Helens and preparing to fight for survival in the Middle 8s, the current uncertainty could be off-putting for potential transfer targets.

However, Ormsby insists he didn’t think twice about making the switch, pointing out the club’s success over recent years and the opportunity to restore that positivity.

“You’d have to be narrow-minded to just look at this year and judge the club.

“I looked at the bigger picture and where the club is going. This year has been a bit of a blip, but I know it will turn around and I want to be part of it when that does happen.

“I really like the atmosphere there. I got on with the boys and I really liked the backroom staff. I just enjoyed my first spell there really. It was a no-brainer really.”
