Some would see it as a move backwards, but for Scott Murrell, he sees it as a chance to not only redeem himself and his career – but a chance to prove his mettle, to one day get back into the Superleague.
Murrell, who joined Hull KR from the Leeds Rhinos in 2006, has signed with Halifax on a 2-year deal – one that Halifax coach Karl Harrison sees as a positive move for the club.
â€œScott has been our main target for a few weeks now and, after lengthy negotiations, we have managed to get his signature after beating off stiff opposition from some Super League clubs,” Harrison said.
For Murrell, he is excited at the chance to play for Halifax and to work under Harrison.
â€œI am really pleased to be joining Karl at Halifax. He has put together a really strong pack and some good backs, and I look forward to working with them and getting to know the lads,” said Murrell.
