Halifax wingman Rob Worrincy will find out tomorrow whether he triumphed in what he believed was a straight shoot out with Rikki Sheriffe for the final wing berth in the side to take on Sheffield in the Championship play offs at the Don Valley Stadium (7.30).

With in-form Wayne Reittie watching from the stands, Sheriffe and Worrincy started on the flanks in the 40-18 win over Workington; Worrincy scoring an early try and Sheriffe coming up with some crucial defensive plays.

“Reittie’s been the form winger for the last four or five weeks, so it’s fair to assume that he’ll come back in,” said Worrincy, who had a horror game on Fax’s last visit to South Yorkshire which saw him substituted in the opening half hour after a string of errors.

“Reittie’s obviously been rested so everyone got the chance to stake a claim, so in essence you would say it was a straight shoot out between me and Rikki and maybe Lee Paterson for that other place.

“It’s tough; hopefully I did enough on Sunday but if I am not involved on Friday it will be the game after or the game after that.

“I didn’t have the best game at Sheffield last time, so we’ll see, it’s not about that game though.”

But no matter who comes out on top this week, Worrincy has pledged the fight for backline places in Karl Harrison’s side will continue throughout the finals series.

“I’ve struggled to find consistent form this year, but I enjoy these big games so hopefully I can come good in the next few weeks,” he said.

“Whatever happens, it’s going to be the same situation for everyone through the play offs; no one is going to be resting on their laurels because there will be someone there to take your spot.”
