Halifax Panthers are delighted to announce the addition of two new members to our backroom team.

Chris Melling joins the club to take up the head physiotherapist role and is a specialist in MSK physiotherapy with over 7 years experience of working within full-time and part-time Rugby League.

Chris has over 10 years playing experience at elite level including Super league and has represented Wigan Warriors and Harlequins Rugby League making over 150 apps and has also represented Great Britain.

Nick Taylor joins the club after qualifying from Leeds Beckett University and spent time learning his trade with Bradford Bulls before heading to Hunslet to lead the medical department.

Nick has also worked for FC Halifax Town, England RL , the RAF and is the owner of a clinic in Huddersfield.

Simon Grix on the additions to his team,

“This has been a couple of years in the making, I wanted Chris in but had to wait for his work commitments to allow him to make it work.  Chris was part of the medical team over at Warrington after finishing up a very good playing career.”

“This experience as a player provides confidence to the playing group as he understands what they put their bodies through.  His knowledge of the game is great and the chance to bring him was too good to miss.”

“Nick is also a welcome addition, working in sport over the last few years working at Halifax Town, Bradford bulls and Hunslet.  He like Chris has made an immediate impression on the group and is here to improve himself and us.”

Welcome to the Panthers Chris & Nick.
