Academy international Matthew Sarsfield has joined Huddersfield Giants from Wigan Warriors on a three-year contract.

The 18-year-old back row forward, who helped England secure a Test series triumph over the touring Australian Schoolboys last year, follows in the footsteps of Wigan academy team-mate Jon Molloy, who joined the Giants in November.

"It's a super signing for us and one that shows how highly we are now regarded in the game by top-line players," said Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis.

Sarsfield is expected to play for his new club alongside Molloy in a trial game at Batley on January 9.
