Ashton Golding to Huddersfield Giants
Another interesting one. During the Jamaican international’s time at his hometown club Leeds, Golding’s last-ditch defensive efforts and attacking work rate could never be questioned. He makes plenty of yards on kick returns and certainly isn’t one to go missing.
However, when chiming into the line his ball playing skills just weren’t good enough to nail down that no.1 shirt and his all-round attacking decision making with ball in hand often let him down.
This is very much a fresh start for Golding though and could well be his last chance to prove himself a Super League player.
He has plenty to offer for the Giants with his versatility, never-say die attitude and tough defence. Darnell Mclntosh, a young fullback with guile and effortless athleticism was among Huddersfield’s biggest attacking threats last season and Golding, more of a defensive fullback, could be in for an intriguing battle to nail down the first-choice fullback spot at the John’s Smiths.
