GRIX JOINS HALIFAX ON LOAN
35-year-old full back to join the Championship Club on loan
Scott Grix has joined Halifax RLFC on an initial one month loan from the Huddersfield Giants, the club can confirm.
Richard Thewlis said “Scotts Manager rang me on Monday and asked for permission to look around for some more permanent game time than he is achieving here.
"In checking with Simon (Woolford) he was happy to let that occur, with Darnell having secured the Full-Back berth which was always the longer term plan and our younger academy players also all making great strides this year.
"Scott will initially do a month at Halifax as per the RFL regulations and then we’ll assess it from there. There is always a risk letting any players leave for the loan period of course but we have Tom Holmes now back playing and four others last week played in the lower leagues all of whom are match fit and pushing to catch Simons eye.
"Our Physios say they expect Lee Gaskell back in contention next week along with Dale Ferguson, Matthew English and Joe Wardle leaving only Adam Walne and Leroy Cudjoe out longer. Grix will remain of course as our Academy Head Coach and fulfil those duties along with coaching and mentoring our young outside backs – in particular Darnell - as he has to date.”
