Barber extends until 2021!



Halifax RLFC are delighted to announce that Ed Barber has signed a further 2-year deal with the club. 


Barber has made 23 appearances in the 2019 campaign so far scoring 9 tries and picking up 3 MoM performances.


Simon Grix commented on the deal;

“Ed has proven himself this year, he’s probably been one of the shining lights on what has been a forgettable league season for us.”


“He’s been really good off the field as well as on. He’s found his voice in the changing room which has led him getting stuck into leading the team which is good to see.”


“You’ve seen him play back row, centre, loose forward, hooker, and even half back at times in games, being versatile is a positive and I believe we’ve still got a lot more to come from him in the coming seasons.”


Barber added “It was an easy decision to take up a further 2 years, I enjoy everything about this club, the lads are great.”



Ed Barber will serve his 1 match ban which was picked up in the previous game against Swinton this weekend as we face Rochdale Hornets at The Shay Stadium.
