Rumours have started that the South Sydney Rabbitohs are about to release Jamie Simpson from his 2011 contract to join the Huddersfield Giants on a two-year deal.
Apparently he will join the English side as a replacement for Parramatta Eels bound centre Paul Whatuira.
Huddersfield coach Nathan Brown was considering both Simpson and Beau Champion in late December. Champion was later released to and signed with the Melbourne Storm to make room for Greg Inglis.
Brown still has two overseas spots available to him, as well as some cash, so picking up Simpson is a distinct possibility.
