Now I have to be honest I know absolutely nothing about the Halton Simms
Cross players but I shall pick Keiron Kavanagh as my one to watch. He
could be Paul Koloi in disguise for all I know but the full back is an
RAF technican who has been, and still is, on standby to fly out to the
Middle East if military action is taken against Iraq.
"I don't want to sound selfish because I hope we can find a
peaceful solution to the Iraqi problem," Kavanagh told The Sun
"But it is frustrating being poised to play in a dream cup tie
while knowing I could be forced to pull out at any moment."
"Playing Wigan at the JJB Stadium is as big as it gets, when the
draw was made, I was gobsmacked.
"Wigan are probably the biggest name in rugby league, while we are
an amateur outfit in the North West Counties, about seven divisions
below Super League.
"It's a fantastic opportunity for us. Our attitude is that we are
going to be remembered for something regardless of the result, and it
would be a sickener if I have to miss our big day.
Looks like he won't be called up for war before Sunday so he'll get
the opportunity to play in the biggest game of his and his club's life.
