Second-row – James Greenwood & Shane Grady
The back row sees an all Yorkshire combination in Hull KR’s James Greenwood and Halifax’s Shane Grady.
Greenwood is another who stuck with KR on that shocking day against Salford and is one who has retained plenty of quality and utilised to great affect for the red and whites.
His strong running has helped the Robins’ ‘go forward’ this season, giving them strength in the back line that has helped their attack prove more potent out wide.
He has also demonstrated his ability to adapt between positions, such as covering in the front row as a battering ram as well as playing out wide in the three-quarters, making him a ‘Mr dependable’ that every club needs.
As for Grady, he has been one of the signings of the season, easily Halifax’s star signing of 2017!
His strength has been superb for ‘Fax, providing them with extra support when they have gotten a ‘roll on’ down the middle.
He’s also another who has proved adaptable, showing off a kicking game which has been rather impressive from a forward.
Furthermore, he has helped himself to four tries this season, combining well with his old friend in Tyrer down the left edge.
Loose-forward – Danny Addy
Completing the line-up was another new addition to KR this season is Danny Addy.
After departing the ill-fated Bradford Bulls, Addy has put such troubling times well and truly behind him as he was another key figure who helped the Robins back to the big time.
What owed to his selection has been his hard running and solid defensive work, arguably becoming a secondary front rower but then again, something you expect from a loose-forward nowadays.
Superb stuff from him and no doubt more to follow when he returns to Super League with his new club.
