Halifax Rugby League Club can confirm former player Sam Barlow is currently training with the club for a 4 week period as he closes in on a return to Rugby League officially on December 1st.
Head coach Simon Grix commented: “Four years is a big punishment and a long time out of the sport, covering what probably should have been the best years of his career. A fit Sam would certainly be an asset to us, but there’s a long way to go and a lot of bridges to cross before then. He can’t sign a professional contract until next month under the terms of his suspension, so we’ll see how things go over the next few weeks and go from there.”
Barlow: “After this mornings brief announcement, I would publicly and personally like to thank Halifax RLFC and Simon Grix for allowing me the opportunity to train with the team, until my official ban is up in a months time.”
“Until then I won’t be making any further comments regarding my future.”
