JAMIE SIMPSON is hoping to celebrate at the double tomorrow.
As well as aiming to play a leading role in the Giants’ bid to beat Batley and progress to the fifth round of the Challenge Cup, the Australian outside back is looking forward to finally welcoming partner Shelby to England.
The 24-year-old has been trying to get her to Huddersfield since the beginning of the year.
But with red tape blocking the way, it’s taken Shelby until now to obtain a visa, which Simpson admits has come as a massive relief.
“I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve been here, but not having Shelby with me has been a bit tough,” he said.
“And what’s made it even tougher is that it’s been a bit of a battle sorting out a visa for her. That has been a bit of a worry, to be honest.
“But that’s all behind us now, and I can’t wait to see her, it’s great news.
“She’s due in to England tomorrow, and I’d love to think I’ll be able to see her with a winning smile on my face.
“I know how much the Challenge Cup means to everyone over here, and the Wembley final is one of the games I always watched back in Australia.
“It would be absolutely fantastic to play there, especially with Shelby by my side.”
