A Super League opportunity beckons for most NRL players and it is Danny Levi’s turn, as he signs a two-year deal with the Huddersfield Giants.
Levi, who most recently played for the Brisbane Broncos, started his NRL career with the Newcastle Knights.
He would then play for the Manly Sea Eagles before joining Brisbane.
With 112 NRL games to his name since his debut in 2015, he is a player that can flourish and one that perhaps has not reached his full potential.
Giants coach Ian Watson is excited to have Levi on board and believes his style is one that can suit the club.
“Danny is electric in and around the ruck, he’s really quick and he’s got great skill,” Watson said.
“His distribution is first class and he brings people onto the ball. He brings the forwards onto the ball to generate the quicker ruck speed.
“His running game will make us dangerous in and around the spine.”
Watson also praised Levi’s ambition and believes he can help the side achieve things in 2022.
“He’s a hungry and ambitious player who wants to achieve things,” Watson continued.
“He wants to boost his profile and we want him to help us in our quest to get to where we want to be.”
Levi is also excited about the opportunity and although it is a big change for his family, he knows it was the right one.
“It’s awesome and really exciting to sign for the club,” Levi said.
“It’ll be a big change for me and my family but we can’t wait to get over. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Ian Watson.
“Lots of people I know have worked under him and consider him one of the best in the business.”
Levi believes he can bring some spark to the side and will look to utilise his running game.
“I’ve heard a fair bit about Super League, it’s a tough competition and I can’t wait to get over and see what it’s like,” Levi continued.
“I like to run, I like to get out of hooker and bring energy to the team.
“That’s what I base my game off – being a high-energy player, try to run as much as possible.”
