The Rugby Football League won’t want to mess with the latest celeb to throw his weight behind Fax’s Super League bid.

For he is burly bodyguard “Big Tony” – aka Tony Adkins.

He spent six years as music mogul Simon Cowell’s minder and his next role is in the final instalment of the Harry Potter film series as a giant.

Londoner Tony, a good friend of Halifax RL director Tony Abbott, told the Courier: “Having been along to the club for the recent Hull KR friendly and seeing just how much work goes on in the background to generate a Super League experience – not to mention the performance of the guys on the pitch – I feel that Fax have got the X Factor.

“And that is going to be really useful if they get back into Super League.

“The town’s really buzzing in expectation and I really hope they get their wish.”

He added: “If I were Harry Potter, I’d certainly grant it!”
