Halifax sign Toronto centre

Halifax have confirmed the signing of centre Greg Worthington from Toronto Wolfpack on a two-year deal.

Worthington was with the Wolfpack from the start, and scored 17 tries in 43 games for them.

He also played for Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions.

Worthington told the club website: “I’m really looking forward to pulling the Halifax shirt on and excited at the prospect of the 2021 season.

“After speaking with Simon about the direction that he wants to take the team, it seemed a really great fit for me to take on.

“In this next chapter of my career, running out at The Shay in front of the Halifax faithful can’t come quick enough and I look forward to meeting all involved with the club and enjoying a successful season.”

Head Coach Simon Grix added: “Greg has been a stand out centre for the last decade in the Championship. He is renowned for his solid defence but also has a strong offensive game. He’ll roll the sleeves up for the tough stuff and has demonstrated his ability to get himself or his winger over the line consistently.”

“He’s a great fit for us in terms of experience alongside his playing abilities. I am looking forward to seeing him in blue and white.”
