Grix has previously coached at Huddersfield Giants and under his guidance took their Academy side to sixth in the table and played a major role in the development of the club's younger outside backs as well as coaching the first team in the same role.

Panthers' head coach Simon Grix said: “Scott will be player-assistant this year. His experience is invaluable to us and, like Rikki, will be a good devil's advocate to ensure I am on my toes and prepared.

"His first priority is to be game ready but throughout pre-season he will have a bigger part to play on the coaching side as we aim to provide a balanced generic and position specific skills program.”
