Paul first joined the Giants ten years ago, making him the longest serving Giants player at the club. He is a great attacking fullback known for his strong kick-returns and direct running, while being more than capable in defence as well. He played for England in the 2004 European Nations Cup, but declined the opportunity to play again in 2005 because he wants to be fully rested for the start of the new season. Paul is a true fans favourite who has been dubbed ‘Mr Claret and Gold’ by some due to his constant enthusiasm and commitment to the Giants cause.

Paul Reillys 10th season with the Huddersfeld Giants and im sure he will make it 1 to remember. He has a lot of talent and he is a great team player. Had a good season in 2005 and will be looking to get off to a great start in 2006. Reilly plays at full back and he is a Huddersfield favourite, basically the hometown hero.
