Returning Halifax recruit Simon Grix has said he hopes to be in full training by Christmas, with the aim of being ready to play by the start of the Championship season in early February.
Grix, who is back at his hometown club a decade after leaving for Super League outfit Warrington, has not played for more than a year after breaking his leg playing for the Wolves.
“I’ll be starting the rehab work shortly with the aim of being back doing the on field stuff with the rest of the team by Christmas,” said Grix.
“In my own mind, I’m aiming to be ready around the time the season starts, but I’m not a doctor or a physio.
“I’ve been out for more than a year, I was on crutches for five months, so it’s not something that can be rushed.
“It’s been a difficult year; there have been a lot of deadlines that have slipped past and there’s been a lot of time when I’ve had to be patient.
“I’m just looking forward to getting back on the field, but it needs to be done right.”
