Halifax RLFC are pleased to confirm that Keegan Hirst has put pen to paper and signed for Halifax until the end of 2021.
Hirst becomes Simon Grix’s latest signing ahead of the 2020 campaign next year and joins from Super League side Wakefield Trinity. A player with 300 career appearances, 66 of those in the Super League, Hirst will bring much needed experience and leadership to the team. Having spent the last month on loan here at Halifax playing in our last 4 games of the season, he has made a real impact with Head Coach Simon Grix being impressed with the contribution the 6ft 5” prop has made.
“It’s great to have Keegan on board, we’ve seen some good things from him whilst he’s been here, he’s a good lad and has fit right in. He’s a good leader and I’m looking forward to seeing what else he brings come pre-season. I know that we weren’t his only option going into next year so it’s great that he has seen the potential in us.”
We asked Keegan about his new challenge ahead; “I’ve really enjoyed my time so far here, I’ve come into a side that hasn't had the best of seasons, but they are a great set the lads, and I am impressed with the club and I really want to play for Halifax. What they’ve got going on here is infectious and I want to be a part of that going forward.''
The fans have been great so far, they’re quite vocal and I hope we can get back to winning ways and get plenty more Fax fans coming down to games to cheer the lads on.”
