The best way to keep up to date with Halifax RUFC


"100 Club" honour for Elvidge

8 months ago By Tony Curtis

Halifax RUFC forward Nick Elvidge joins the band of players to make 100 first team appearances.

It has been a long time coming, however clubman Nick Elvidge has been awarded his tie for finally making 100 first XV appearances for Halifax RUFC.

Having worked his way through the ranks as a talented junior to an experienced veteran, Elvidge has been an integral part of the Halifax family.

He was the heartbeat of the old Vikings team before becoming a key figure in the first XV when the club returned to grassroots rugby in 2009.

A sabbatical in Australia and the unwanted tag of being a "wet weather" specialist meant Elvidge took longer to reach his century than his dogged, tough-tackling performances for the club deserved.

However the former flanker has been revitalised since moving to hooker, with the 36-year-old awarded with his 100-game tie following the 48-0 win over Thirsk on Saturday.
