Kieron Purtill makes early Huddersfield Giants move

Kieron Purtill

England Knights coach Kieron Purtill has joined Huddersfield Giants' coaching team with immediate effect.

Purtill was set to join the club at the end of the season when Paul Anderson was due to take over as manager.

Nathan Brown was relieved of his duties as Giants coach last week after a poor run of form, meaning Anderson took charge early.

"The Giants have grown over the years and now boast an exciting array of talent," Purtill told the club website.external-link
