FORMER Yorkshire and Ashes-winning cricketer Matthew Hoggard is the latest sports star to back Fax’s Super League bid.
The bowler is a Leeds Rhinos fan, but the first-ever final he watched was Halifax v Wigan in the 1988 Challenge Cup final.
He said he would love to see some Leeds v Halifax games again if the club wins its campaign for promotion.
The RFL is to announce which club goes up next month.
