Halifax add young half Harris

Halifax have announced the signing of half-back Liam Harris from Super League side Hull FC on a one-year deal.

Harris becomes Simon Grix’s sixth new signing ahead of the 2021 Championship campaign.

Harris came through the academy at Hull KR, and spent time on loan at York City Knights before signing for Doncaster in 2018. He then signed for the Black and Whites soon after.

The half-back links up with former team mate Connor Robinson after previously enjoying a successful partnership at York in 2018. 

Reacting to the news, he said: “I’m excited about meeting up with the boys and getting stuck in to pre season. I’m also looking forward to getting to work with a young exciting coach in Grixy.

“Every time I’ve seen Fax play they’ve always been a hard working team that are tough to beat. I’m aiming to come in and add some finesse to the attack and to play an attractive but efficient style of rugby.”

Grix added: “Liam is a very confident, exciting young player with bags of potential.

“Unfortunately, due to the obvious we didn’t get to see him this year but the appeal of him as an individual, his age, high skill level and the fact he has had successful partnership with Connor previously makes him a good fit for us.”
