Michael Lawrence has said it’s an “honour and a privilege” to be made club captain at Huddersfield Giants.
The 30-year-old forward is a one-club man who stands for everything that is great about the Giants – and the wider Huddersfield community.
Earlier this year Lawrence became a member of the Rugby Football League’s inclusion board as part of the governing body’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and anti-discrimination.
New Giants head coach Ian Watson quickly recognised the regard in which Lawrence is held inside and outside the club and said: “Arriving here, I thought it was important for the club to have a figurehead on the playing side.
“When you come into a new club, you want someone who epitomises what the club represents on and off the field. I’ve been greatly impressed by Michael’s attitude, and he’s been included on the RFL’s new inclusion board.
“Huddersfield is a diverse place and I believe that Michael’s values and attitude mirrors the values of the area, the owner Ken Davy and the club and that’s what I wanted.”
