Halifax secure Scott Grix signing

Halifax have completed the signing of seasoned fullback Scott Grix on a one-year deal.

The 35-year-old, the brother of Fax head coach Simon, spent the second half of last year on loan with his hometown club.

He becomes the club’s sixth signing for 2020 after leaving his role on Huddersfield’s coaching staff.

“I am extremely happy to be staying for the 2020 season,” the Ireland international said.

“I definitely feel there’s unfinished business here, the way the team & I finished last year doesn’t sit right with me being a Halifax fan & can’t wait to get into it.

“The decision to leave my coaching role with the Giants wasn’t an easy one but I want to finish playing on my terms & there’s no better place than my home town club.

“I would like to thank the Giants for giving me the opportunity to start my coaching career in which I’ve gained valuable experience for the future. For now though I’m going to enjoy every minute until I’m done.”
