ENGLAND forward Brett Ferres has been suspended by Huddersfield, the Super League club have revealed.
The Giants have given no explanation for their decision, other than to say they are carrying out an internal investigation into his conduct away from the club.
The 29-year-old former Bradford, Wakefield and Castleford second rower, who joined the Giants in July 2012, played in all three of England’s matches against New Zealand, including last Saturday’s series-deciding 20-14 victory at Wigan.
In a statement issued late on Tuesday night, the club said: “Huddersfield Giants have this afternoon suspended Brett Ferres from the club pending an internal investigation into conduct away from the club.
“The Giants will be making no further comment at this stage.”
Ferres was named in the 2013 Super League Dram Team, played in all three of England’s games in the 2014 Four Nations Series down under and was their man of the match after scoring two tries in their opening 26-12 win over the Kiwis in Hull earlier this month.
