Fax re-sign fan favourite Worrincy

Halifax have confirmed the signing of former winger Rob Worrincy, as first revealed in League Express last month.

Worrincy spent six years at Fax after joining the club in 2009, scoring 96 tries in 117 appearances in a spell that saw him become one of the Championship’s most prolific wingers.

He joins the club from fellow Championship side Sheffield Eagles, who he signed for in 2015 after leaving Halifax.

“Rob has always caused us problems when we’ve faced him,” said Halifax head coach Richard Marshall.

“He’s a very tough cookie to play or coach against. He’s a proven try scorer with genuine pace and he’ll improve our squad overall and our attacking options in particular.”

Meanwhile, the club has also confirmed that winger Will Sharp will stay at the club.

After a slow start to life at Fax following his move from Featherstone, the speedster won over the Fax faithful with a strong end to the season and has now penned a new one-year deal.

“We’ve not yet seen the best of him I’m sure,” added Marshall.

“He’s probably been our best performer over the last six or seven games and if he can pick form up going into next year he’s going to be an important member of squad.”
