Welcome Zack McComb


Halifax RLFC are delighted to announce the signing of Zack McComb who joins the club on a two-year deal ahead of the Betfred championship 2021 campaign.

Zack becomes Simon Grix’s third new signing ahead of the 2021 Betfred Championship campaign.

The 25 year old centre and former Siddal junior joins the club after impressing at both Oldham where he helped them win promotion to the Championship and most recently Sheffield eagles where he impressed in 2020 before the pandemic struck putting an end to the season.

An impressive junior career brought interest from a host of Super League clubs with Zack choosing to join Huddersfield Giants before enjoying five years at the club as-well as becoming a BSc sports coaching graduate at Leeds Beckett University.

Zack has also represented Ireland in the World cup Qualifiers and could feature in the up and coming World cup 2021 that is due to be played in England.

And Zack was delighted to have signed for his hometown club.

“Obviously it’s class to sign for my hometown club, I think with the team Grixy’s put together it’s going to be a really enjoyable year for the squad and fans. I’m really looking forward to just getting back training never mind playing. It’ll be good to meet all the lads, hopefully I’ll stop getting booted from the what’s app group then.”

Head coach Simon Grix on the latest addition to the 2021 squad.

“While we aren’t in a position to produce our own at present we do keep an eye on players from our area and Zack is one of these. He enjoyed success at Oldham before moving onto Sheffield for the 2020 season.”

“We actually had him before, but the time away has served him well and we will welcome back an improved player. He is a confident bloke, strong, agile and works hard on his game. He’s coming here to challenge himself and push for a place in his hometown team.”
