Halifax have signed veteran full-back Scott Grix on loan from Super League neighbours Huddersfield.

Grix, 35, who was born in Halifax and made 18 appearances for them in the early stages of his career in 2004, will link up with younger brother Simon, who is in temporary charge of the Championship club following the departure of head coach Richard Marshall.

"It's a brilliant opportunity for me to play for my home-town club, especially with Simon still being involved," said the Ireland international.

"It's been a long time since I wore a blue and white jersey and I can't wait to get it back on."

Grix rejoined Huddersfield from Wakefield at the start of the season, primarily as a member of their coaching staff, but has been pressed into services four times for Simon Woolford's team so far.

Huddersfield managing director Richard Thewlis said: "Scott will initially do a month at Halifax as per the RFL regulations and then we'll assess it from there.

"Grixy will remain of course as our academy head coach and continue coaching and mentoring our young outside backs."
