IN-FORM Scott Grix is happy to continue at scrum half – as long as the Giants keep on winning!
The 27-year-old, pictured, made a successful switch from full-back to half-back in Sunday’s 40-12 Super League triumph over Crusaders.
That also enabled Gregg McNally to make a rock-solid top-flight debut as Grix’s replacement at No1.
Grix was full of praise for the way McNally shaped up in his first taste of Super League action.
And he would be happy for the duo to continue in the roles in tomorrow’s top-of-the-table clash against Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
“I enjoyed it at scrum half, and it wasn’t too difficult for me to fit in to the role at all,” said Grix.
“I prefer to play at the back if I can, but you’ve got to be versatile for the benefit of the team and it was great to see Gregg McNally make his debut, all the boys were really pleased for him.
“He’s been knocking at the door for a while now and he’ll take a lot of confidence from the experience.
“It’s taken a lot of hard work from him to adapt from half-back to full-back and he’s clearly a very good goal kicker.
“Scrum-half is a really different position, although you have to have the same mindset in helping to get the team around the park.
“I’m not a recognised No7 and I’m never going to be able to offer the team the attributes that Danny Brough does.
“But I’d like to think I’m a suitable replacement until Browny needs me to move back to full-back.
“I know I’m going to be tested by Warrington in the position, but we tend to play well against the top clubs, so that should give us some confidence going into the game.”
