Explosive Halifax winger Rob Worrincy has signed a new two-year deal with Halifax which will extend his spell at The Shay until the end of the 2013 season.
Club director Ian Croad stated “We created a list of players that we wanted to sign up as quickly as possible, and Rob was certainly at the top end of that. He’s still young but already achieved so much with this Club.
“He is a great member of the team and always willing to step up. He’s scored some spectacular tries over the years, and it’s great to have him playing for us again. He’s one of the players you’d rather have in your team, and to have him signed up prior to the big game with Sheffield, his former Club, well, it’s a real coup for us”
Worrincy, most famed for his long distance Grand Final try last year, will be looking to finish 2011 in style and set up a return to Warrington for his third Grand Final. After experiencing both a win and a loss in the final stage, the flying winger is keen to pick up another winners medal.
“It’s been a bit of an up and down year, but it’s all about what happens now. We’ve already made it to one final and in with a good chance for a second one too. If we go all the way in the next couple of weeks, then 2011 will probably be remembered as one of the best years in the Club’s history. The thought of being apart of that is amazing.”
“Everything is lining up nicely for 2012, and I always wanted to be part of it. Karl (Harrison) is a great coach and achieved some great things at Batley. Hopefully he can bring that success here, and we can enjoy some more success over the next few years. It’s what playing is all about.”
