Ahead of his testimonial, against Dewsbury Rams this coming Sunday, Leroy Cudjoe has spoken to the Rams’ website.

Are you all set for the game against Dewsbury?

“Unfortunately, I am currently injured so I won’t be able to play in the game. I am very disappointed that I can’t play, but sport can be cruel sometimes and I’ve just got to accept it and enjoy the day.

“I am very grateful to the Rams for agreeing to play in the game and they were more than happy to accept the offer. It also adds a little bit of spice with it being a Kirklees derby.

“I’ve been very fortunate to be able to become a one club man. I am very passionate about the Giants and Huddersfield as a whole. There is nothing better than being able to represent your hometown club.

What advice do you have to young players who have just started out in the game?
