Huddersfield Giants: Robinson commits his future to club

Huddersfield have secured the services of England scrum-half Luke Robinson until the end of 2015.

The 26-year-old Robinson, who was one of the few successes on England's recent Four Nations tour, signed a two-year contract extension in March, taking him to the end of 2012, and has now committed his future to the club for another three years.

The deal matches that of his England and Huddersfield team-mate Kevin Brown, who signed a new five-year deal in June.

Robinson, who delayed his wedding to make his international debut in

New Zealand, will miss the first month of the new season after undergoing shoulder surgery, three weeks after going under the knife to repair the elbow he broke during England's victory over Papua New Guinea.

Although he played for England at scrum-half, he is set to continue in his new hooking role with the Giants after being handed the number nine jersey ahead of Shaun Lunt for Engage Super League XVI.

Danny Brough gets Robinson's old squad number, with Scott Grix earmarked for the full-back role after being handed outgoing captain Brett Hodgson's number one jersey.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown has promoted 18-year-old back row forward Ross Peltier from the club's Under-18s team to his full-time squad on a two-year contract.

"Ross has a long way to go yet but he is a local lad and comes from a family with a sporting background and he definitely possesses some talent," Brown said.

"If he keeps putting in the hard work that he is at the moment he has a good chance of progressing."
