The Aussie half-back ace supported NRL side Wests Tigers and as a 10-year-old he met his hero – then full-back Hodgson.

He wanted a reminder of his encounter. So the man who is now Hull FC boss put his signature on cash!

“I was 10 years old in 2008 and met Brett at the airport before he came to England,” Cust recalled.

“I actually got him to sign an American dollar bill. I don’t know if he remembers it, but I was a big Tigers supporter.

“I was going to go to America with my grandma and grandpa and also take all my cousins ​​with me and I saw him at the airport and got him to sign the dollar.

“That’s something I’ll definitely bring up when I can have a chat with him. He won’t remember this incident, but it was just before he came to England.

“And as a huge supporter of the Tigers, I definitely remember that! I remember watching the 2005 Grand Final against the North Queensland Cowboys.

“I think half my hometown of Scone watched it.”

Aside from 23-year-old Cust indulging in a bit of hero worship, tonight’s clash will be a friends reunion.

And Wigan’s Patrick Mago will be keen to defeat Hull’s Andre Savelio and Joe Lovodua, former Brisbane Broncos and South Sydney teammates respectively.

Otherwise, he won’t hear the ending after revealing his role in the moment the former’s NRL hopes were dashed by a serious knee injury.

The prop said: “I still joke about it with Andre to this day. I was about to carry and he pushed me out of the way and said he hadn’t done anything yet.

“He took it and did his ACL. I say to him, ‘You should have let me carry it.’ I was ashamed of him at the time.

“I love Andre, he’s a good guy but when I trained with him he loved showing his skills and he has the biggest head!”
