Andy has joined the club from Hull KR. A Giants fan, Andy made his way through the club's academy before moving away from the Galpharm to a number of lower league clubs.

Andy is a long striding back row forward who loves to hit the holes and has the pace to go the distance as he showed in last years national league play offs. He recieved the top league honour by being named both Player and Players Player of the Year at the end of season awards dinner as well as sweeping the boards with club honours at Hull KR

Andy is a terrific prospect and one to look out for in 2006.
Position – Second Row
Rep Honours – NL1 Player of the Year(2005),NL1 Player’s player of the year(2005),NL1 Dream Team(2005),NL2 Dream Team(2003,2004)
Weight – 105 kilograms
Height – 190 cm

Andy comes from Hull KR with big wraps after making the dream team in his respective divisions and winning the player of the year award for every team he has played for since 2003. Quick and strong, Andy was originally a product of Huddersfield’s academy and many have tipped him for international honours in the future. If he makes the transition from NL1 to Super League successfully, he could be a massive star by the end of the season.
