Simon Woolford has been appointed as the new Huddersfield Giants head coach.
The Australian 43-year-old has left his coaching role with NRL club Newcastle Knights and signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Super League club.
Woolford is best known for being a hooker and captain at Canberra Raiders, and he also spent the latter part of his career at St George Illawarra Dragons.
He will have some knowledge of his new club as he has been working alongside Newcastle Knights coach Nathan Brown, who was in charge of the Giants from 2009-2012.
Huddersfield are currently bottom of the Super League and have gone eight matches without a win.
