Brett Ferres (born 17 April 1986 in Castleford, England) is a professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Huddersfield Giants of Super League. An England national representative second-row forward, he previously played for the Bradford Bulls, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats and Castleford Tigers.[5]

Playing career[edit]

2000s[edit]

Ferres was a member of the England academy side that toured Australia and New Zealand in 2004. In 2005 he made 9 first team appearances for the Bradford Bulls and was the regular goal kicker for the senior academy, a side he also captained, scoring 17 tries in only 17 appearances for the under-21s.[6] As Super League champions Bradford faced National Rugby League premiers Wests Tigers in the 2006 World Club Challenge, Ferres played from the interchange bench in the Bulls' 30-10 victory. Ferres won caps for England in 2006 against France, Tonga (2 matches), and Samoa in the 2006 Federation Shield tournament.[7][8][9][10][11] In late 2006, Ferres signed for Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in exchange for David Solomona who went to Bradford Bulls.[12]

Ferres signed for Castleford Tigers on 7 November 2008 after being released from his contract with Wakefield.[13]

On 2 July 2009 Ferres signed a new 3-year deal to stay at Castleford.[14]

2010s[edit]

In July 2012, Ferres signed for Huddersfield Giants for a three-and-a-half-year deal.[15]

He was named at second-row in the 2013 Super League Dream Team.

In 2013, Ferres was named in the English squad for the 2013 Rugby League World Cup. Ferres was selected after Gareth Hock's breached team policy and was removed from the squad. Ferres featured in every game England played.
