Halifax to field new signings

Salford v Halifax

Halifax's two new signings, Paul Parker and Heath Cruckshank, will make their first starts in Sunday's friendly with Salford at the Shay.

Parker was signed from Hull before Christmas and starts at centre, while former Leigh, St Helens and Huddersfield forward Cruckshank partners Jaymes Chapman in the second row.

Local star Chris Norman gets a first start at wing, while New Zealander Martin Moana returns to the Shay 18 months after leaving Salford.

"It is a chance for the supporters to get a look at the new players and a chance for the players to get to know each other," said coach Tony Anderson.

"Paul and Heath have both trained well and are looking forward to getting a run out."


Featherstone v Wakefield

Feathersone old boys Jamie Rooney and Richard Newlove will make a quick return to the Lionheart Stadium with their new club Wakefield.

Wildcats coach Shane McNally expects to use all his squad except hooker David March - who for the third straight close season has suffered an injury in training - and winger Jon Wells.

March is out with an ankle problem but is expected to play in the club's other friendlies at York on 12 January and Halifax on 24 January.

"I want to play everyone so there'll be unlimited interchanges," said McNally.

"It's a good opportunity to give everyone a run and give the young blokes the chance us how they're developing."
