Former Tiger Hodgson to leave Giants

Huddersfield have announced captain Brett Hodgson, the reigning Super League Man of Steel, will leave the club at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old fullback, who won the NRL grand final with West Tigers in 2005, whose two-year contract runs out in October, has rejected the Giants' offer of a 12-month extension and is expected to join Warrington on a two-year deal from 2011.

"He wanted the guaranteed security of two years which we were not prepared to do at this stage and, therefore, gave his manager permission to explore the market elsewhere," said Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis.

"He will leave with our very best wishes and thanks for his time here and will always be welcomed back in the future."

Hodgson who played six times for NSW, has scored 260 points in 29 appearances for the Giants, becoming only the fourth Australian to win the Man of Steel award.

He is expected to replace former Manly and Penrith winger Chris Hicks on Warrington's overseas quota next season.
