Leeds Rhinos help Championship club with their “skinny squad”

Leeds Rhinos Headingley Stadium

Halifax Panthers have plenty of quality in their squad for 2023.

Though exits such as Joe Arundel who has headed to Bradford Bulls, the Panthers only have 24 players.

Coach Simon Grix revealed on Facebook that he is still confident in his “skinny squad” and that they only have “niggles” in their squad.

However, Grix is looking to make further signings to strengthen their squad and ensure that they don’t have a “problem” later in the season.

Though they already have problems even if they don’t have any major injuries right now.

This is because the Panthers can’t train 13 on 13 in pre-season and only do left edge vs right edge this pre-season due to their “skinny squad” this is why Leeds Rhinos stepped in to allow Grix’s side to train 13 on 13.

This is perhaps because his brother is working as an assistant coach at Headingley as Scott Grix helped replace Jamie Jones-Buchanan and new Featherstone Rovers boss Sean Long alongside Chev Walker.

The Rhinos aren’t the only side stepping in to help the Panthers with League One side Dewsbury Rams, who were relegated from the Championship last season, also training with the Panthers to allow them to train 13 on 13 ahead of the new season.
