Halifax have re-signed the influential forward Adam Robinson for 2013.

Robinson, a former Wakefield junior, put pen to paper on a new one year contract, with an option for the 2014 season, at training last night.

The 25 year old prop or back rower, one of five players who followed boss Karl Harrison to the Shay from Batley last autumn, has been one of the stars of the club’s charge to the top of the Co-operative Championship.

“Robbo’s been a fantastic signing for us, I’ve been really pleased with him,” said Harrison.

“I’m delighted he’ll be staying with us.”

Robinson is the sixth high-profile player to commit to the club for next year and beyond in recent weeks, following the new deals agreed by Lee Paterson, Steve Tyrer, Craig Ashall, Wayne Reittie and Dane Manning.

Harrison already had five players tied to two year deals: the half backs Anthony Thackeray and Paul Handforth, young centre Ben Heaton, winger Rob Worrincy and back rower Ross Divorty.
