Huby made his debut for his hometown club against Leeds Rhinos as a 16-year-old in 2003. He was established as a regular first-team player in the 2005 National League season. His good form of that season continued in Super League 2006, and despite suffering a number of injuries in the promotion-winning season of 2007 he has been a key member of the side since.

He further gave credence to this after playing in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final two weeks after dislocating his elbow in the Semi Final against Widnes Vikings.

Married to Victoria, they have 2 children and live locally to Castleford where he grew up and played junior rugby for Castleford Panthers.
