Departing forward Ryan Hinchcliffe says his focus is firmly on finishing the season well with Storm after announcing yesterday he would move on at season's end.

Hinchcliffe will make the move to the English Super League in 2016, signing a three-year deal with Huddersfield Giants but is adamant he has much to achieve in Melbourne before the season is out.

"I'm looking forward to that challenge (moving to the English Super League) when it comes," Hinchcliffe said.

"Now my focus is purely on finishing well here at Storm.

"It's (Melbourne Storm) played a huge part in my life. I've had some unbelievable memories and got some unbelievable teammates and friends in the staff.

"I'll be giving my all to the team and the Club for the rest of the year, there's no doubt about that."

The utility forward, widely regarded for his consistency and reliable nature explained the decision to extend his career at 30 years of age was a prospect he couldn't pass up. 

"The opportunity to play three more years of professional rugby league was a big one," Hinchcliffe said.

"People I have spoken to about the Club (Huddersfield) speak very highly of it.

"I feel very lucky at my age to have achieved what I have achieved and to get a three year deal to go over and play in the Super League, I'm very grateful."
