Scott Grix joins brother Simon at Halifax

Huddersfield full-back Scott Grix will be reunited with brother Simon after joining Betfred Championship side Halifax on loan. 

The 33-year-old, who was born in Halifax, will link up with the side on an initial month-long deal with the view to extending it until the end of the 2019 season.

Grix has only featured four times for the Giants this season, scoring one try in the process. His last appearance came in a win over London Broncos on Easter Monday.

Nevertheless, he brings a wealth of experience having made over 350 career appearances, including 22 for the Ireland national team, racking up 136 tries and over 600 points.

The Shaymen sit eighth in the Championship table, with six wins and six losses from their opening 12 league games. They are currently managed by player-coach Simon Grix following Richard Marshall’s departure last month.

On the loan signing, Scott Grix said: “It’s a brilliant opportunity for me to play for my home town club, especially with Simon still being involved.

“It’s been a long time since I wore a blue and white jersey and I can’t wait to get it back on. Thanks to both clubs for making this happen.

“As well as playing, the move to Huddersfield Giants has provided me with a fantastic opportunity to develop my coaching career as Academy Head Coach and also develop the back line for the first team, both of which I will continue to do.”
