Halifax add Huddersfield youngster

Halifax have announced the signing of Ben Tibbs who joins the club from Super league side Huddersfield Giants on a one-year deal.

Tibbs becomes Simon Grix’s seventh new signing ahead of the 2021 Championship campaign. 

Reacting to the news, Tibbs said: “I’m delighted to join Halifax this season, it’s been a tough year with everything that’s happened and not being able to play much rugby so when the opportunity came I jumped on it.

“I actually trained a little last year with the squad when I was at Huddersfield in pre season and really enjoyed it, it’s a great environment with good facilities which all makes up for a successful squad.

“I can’t wait to get back training now and look forward to working with Simon and the team for hopefully a great season ahead.”

Grix added: “Ben joins us from Huddersfield Giants as a result of the cancellation of the reserves competition.

“He has his admirers at Huddersfield but a first team contract was a little out of reach. He is a well rounded player, playing anywhere in the backs.

“Physically he has some work to do to compete with men on a weekly basis, as most young players do, but given time he certainly has the potential to be a good championship player.”
