Scott Murrell

Scott Murrell's Rugby League Testimonial


The year of the Muzza...

Each season, a handful of selected players are honoured with a Testimonial Year in recognition of long and outstanding service to the game and their Club. This year, we're proud to say our long-standing skipper, Scott 'Muzza' Murrell will begin his year of celebrations!



As a 27 year old utility back, Murrell came to Halifax under Harrison’s reign, on a 2 year deal from Hull KR. Since then, Scott has helped bring a noticeably growing sense of unity to the squad. 

Murrell began playing Rugby League at the age of 3, at his local side, Drighlington ARLFC. Having worked his way up to Leeds Rhinos Academy at 17, his Superleague debut came soon after, though he’s rooted in the rugby league community now more than ever. “Cut me I bleed blue & white” Murrell half joked, before saying “Or black and yellow because I’m still a Drighlington lad.”

Before the arrival of Richard Marshall in 2014, Scott stepped up to the mark and beyond; acting as Head Coach for the last 3 games of the season and solidifying his place as a Halifax legend. 

In 2015, Murrell boosted his repertoire further, entering his current role of ‘Head of Rugby’ at Calderdale college. He now coaches the ‘Halifax RLFC Performance Pathway’ made up of Amateur Rugby League players who train regularly, alongside their studies.

Halifax RLFC is ever proud to have Scott Murrell as Captain, and wish him huge congratulations for this accolade.
