Halifax keen to end their hoodoo against Grovians

Halifax will look to end their Old Grovians hoodoo when they host the Woodhouse Grove-based outfit in the Silver Trophy.

Halifax have endured a frustrating run of results against the old boys side - including a heavy away defeat earlier this season.

Vice-captain Dwaine West returns after missing the loss to Harrogate Pythons.

Winger John Robertson is also back, while Luke Sturman, Nick Elvidge and skipper Tony Curtis have passed fitness tests.

A Halifax XV recorded a 24-22 victory over the Bumble Bee Barbarians on Wednesday evening.
