Huddersfield Giants star Scott Grix confirmed today that he is in good health after a severe concussion in the second half of Sunday's victory over Hull FC that saw him leave the field on a stretcher with a precautionary neck brace.

The 27 year old also exonerated Hull FC centre Kirk Yeaman of any blame for the collision which caused the injury;

"I'm not feeling too bad now! I was feeling pretty rough immediately after the game on Sunday and a bit on Monday morning. My body feels a bit like it's been in a car crash but it's one of those things and you just have to get on with it and hopefully get myself right for this week.

"I don't remember anything about the incident at the time, I have a vague memory of being on the stretcher on the field but it was only very brief and felt like about twenty seconds rather than the length of time I was actually getting treated on the field. I've watched the incident back and I can see why my family were panicking about things a little bit. People have been texting me asking how I was and supporters sending messages into the club which is appreciated but it's just one of those things and thankfully I'm relatively ok.

"It wasn't a malicious tackle from Kirk (Yeaman) I don't think. It's his job to come in there and hit me hard, that's what he did and it was just unfortunate that it caused me a concussion. If I didn't dip as low as I did he may not have caught me on the chin and it wouldn't have mattered. Robbo (Luke Robinson) gets knocked out three times a game practically so I can't whinge about it happening once!"

With the players showing great determination to seal an impressive victory over a spirited Hull FC team, Grix praised his team mates who continued on in his absence to secure the two points;

"The lads really dug in after I went off and it was a good win, we are starting to play the teams that are coming into form and they made it very difficult for us. I'd imagine Hull will win more than they will lose for the remainder of the season. There were aspects of our performance we were unhappy with and there are certainly things we need to work on in the next few weeks to ensure a strong finish to the year."

The popular full-back is now turning his attention to Sundays game against Castleford Tigers at the Shay (5.45pm) ? with the Halifax based player excited to get the chance to play at the Giants temporary home venue.

"Castleford are coming off a good win and they have some terrific players. You can't call them a one man team but there's no doubt Rangi Chase is their main man and he scored four again on the weekend. He's a talented player and we will have to be on our game in defence against him and others. It's great that we have a venue like the Shay to go to while the Galpharm pitch is being renovated and I hope there is a full house to see us on Sunday. It's my hometown ground so I'm pleased that we will get the chance to play there and hopefully we can get the win."
