Halifax’s new back row recruit Luke Adamson has admitted he is not “expecting miracles” ahead of his anticipated debut at Doncaster on Easter Monday (3.30).

Adamson, who played seven seasons of Super League with Salford, is in his third week at the Shay after a five-month sabattical in rugby union with Bath.

But the 25 year old has had to be patient as coach Karl Harrison kept faith with the forwards who have piloted the club to the top of the Championship.

“I should be playing on Monday and I just want to get in there now and get a game,” said Adamson, who was 18th man as Fax flogged Dewsbury 60-6 on Thursday night.

“The team has been playing very well; they were very good against Dewsbury on Thursday night.

“They just need to build on that now, but the quality is there and I’m confident we can do that.

“The lads were speaking straight after the game, saying ‘Let’s not let this go to our heads’.

“They don’t want to rest on their laurels, they want to kick on and get better.

“I’ve not played rugby league for a while, but when you’ve played it for 12-13 years I’m pretty confident it will be second nature to me.

“I’m not expecting any miracles early on, but hopefully I can add something to the team.”
