Stars come out for James

JAMES Haley has named a strong Halifax select side for tomorrow night’s testimonial fixture against Queensland Cup outfit Burleigh Bears at the Shay (8.0).

The nucleus of Fax’s 2011 side - including Rob Worrincy, Sean Penkywicz, Makali Aizue, Sam and Josh Barlow and Jon Goddard - will be joined in a 23-man line up by Grand Final winning forward David Wrench, who retired after Fax’s triumph over Featherstone in 2010.

Next year’s assistant coach and former Fax wingman Lee Greenwood also plays, alongside former stars Oli Marns and Jamie Bloem.

Several players who emerged from Fax’s junior ranks with Haley - Luke Simeunovich, Luke Garnett, Wayne Corcoran and Scott Law - will also feature in special one-off shirts sponsored by local law firm Chadwick Lawrence.

Halifax select (from): Goddard, Worrincy, Haley, Clayton, Holroyde, Bowman, Law, Penkywicz, Cherryholme, S. Barlow, J. Barlow, Chandler, Greenwood, Bloem, Marns, Wrench, A. Boothroyd, M. Boothroyd, St Hilaire, Simeunovich, Garnett, O’Brien, Corcoran, Hoyle, Watene, Aizue
