Halifax RLFC is delighted to announce that winger Shaun Robinson has joined the club from Featherstone Rovers on a one-year deal.
Robinson has established himself as one of the most highly-regarded wingers in the Championship over the past couple of seasons with his lightening-speed and deadly finishing seeing him score 15 tries in 30 appearances for Featherstone in 2018.
Halifax head coach Richard Marshall says he’s delighted to have Robinson on board and revealed that he had been on his radar for a while.
“We’ve been tracking Shaun for some time now and I’m really pleased that we have managed to sign him,” said Marshall.
“We just missed out on him last but it’s great that we’ve been able to make him our first signing for 2019.”
“He has electric pace and is a real handful out of the ruck. Playing against him, we’ve always struggled with carries and we’ve had to put some real time into stopping him on the training field to limit his threats.”
“Thankfully, now we can utilise those abilities instead. He’s a great finisher of tries off as well and I am sure that he will enhance our edge defence.”
“I think the Halifax fans are going to love his pace and power from the wing.”
