HALIFAX supporters will get their first glimpse of incoming coach Karl Harrison’s new-look side on Boxing Day after the club confirmed a noon showdown with local rivals Keighley at the Shay.
The Cougars, promoted back into the Championship under player-boss Jason Demetriou, have already signed Halifax half back Danny Jones - who was yesterday named in Wales’ Four Nations squad - for 2012.
“It will be a good chance to give the players a hit out and start looking at a few combinations,” said Harrison.
One player who could be on show is ex-Leeds youngster Callum Casey, who sealed a switch to Fax late yesterday.
The Oldham-based player, the son of former Oldham and Featherstone prop Leo, has penned a one year contract.
