Danny Brough & Scott Grix – Player Swap Confirmed !


Wakefield have confirmed the signing of Danny Brough from Huddersfield, with Scott Grix to join Huddersfield as part of the deal.

Both players are no strangers to their new clubs having played there earlier in their careers.

Brough, 35, has signed a two-year deal to complete some “unsettled business” with Trinity, who have finished fifth in Super League for the past two seasons.

“I am over the moon to go back to where it started, I have had a long and positive chat with Michael Carter and Chris Chester over the past few weeks”. Brough said.

“I have a lot of unsettled business at Wakefield and I owe a lot to the fans after my previous spell at the Club. I am looking forward to the new challenge, it is a new environment with a great set of lads and I cannot wait to knuckle down and get stuck in with the boys.”

The former Scotland international was with Wakefield for two seasons before moving to the Giants in March 2010.

He won the Man of Steel in 2013, also leading Huddersfield to the League Leaders’ Shield.

Grix, 34, returns to Huddersfield where he played from 2010 to 2016.

He will pass the 350 appearance milestone next season and has scored more than 1100 points in a career.

“Although I would have been happy to finish my contract as a Trinity player, I have now got an eye on life after rugby. The opportunity to become a coach after playing was the catalyst behind this move and I am very much looking forward to adding some value to a Club I have spent a lot of years at.” Grix said
