The Giants have paid an undisclosed transfer fee for the 6ft 5in front-rower, who made a big impression at the Recre after joining Haven in June.

“I hear nothing but good reports of all aspects of the set-up at Huddersfield and I will be moving across to live there after this season has finished,” said Mullally, who three weeks ago underwent knee surgery that was expected to sideline him for six weeks.

He earned the respect of Haven fans when scoring a superb try in the narrow derby defeat at Workington Town in his second appearance for the club.

Mullally spent last year with Brisbane Broncos’ feeder club in Australia before returning in time for the Vikings’ return to Super League. But he rejected the offer of a new deal with Widnes, who lie next to bottom of the Super League table.

Giants managing director Richard Thewlis said: “Anthony was identified a long time back by us as being a prodigious talent and the year in Australia confirmed that from the reports we received.”

Mullally will link up with Huddersfield in November for the start of pre-season training.
