Product Description

You'll love this because...

Read about some of the most memorable moments from the Rugby League Challenge Cup as they were reported on at the time.

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1929 to the present day

Relive all the most memorable moments in Challenge Cup history through newspaper clippings in this personalised Rugby League book. With coverage beginning in 1929, when the final was played at Wembley for the very first time, this exquisite piece of Challenge Cup memorabilia takes you on a stroll down memory lane, revisiting all the key moments from nearly a hundred cup finals along the way, right up until the present day.

The first ever Challenge Cup final was played at Headingly on 24th April 1897, and saw Batley defeat St Helens in front of a crowd of just over 13,000, a far cry from the 1954 final replay, when well over 100,000 people packed into Odsal to watch Warrington complete a league and cup double via a win over Halifax. No club has either appeared in or won more Challenge Cup finals than Wigan Warriors, who boast a record of 19 victories from 30. Wigan are also the only team to win more than three Cups in a row, capturing a quite incredible eight on the bounce from 1988 to 1995. Leeds Rhinos hold the records for both the most points scored in a final and the largest winning margin, defeating London Broncos 52-16 in 1999, before demolishing Hull Kingston Rovers 50-0 in 2015.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

    Thank you for your review.

    Please accept our apologies this has happened with the order,

    We can see that this has been logged with our production team as this should have been checked prior to dispatch and when speaking with the customer advisor they have advised the best way to go about this due to this being time sensitive.

    The certificate labels within the Books have been made easy peel so that these can be removed freely without leaving any residue or tearing the page, we can see from the notes that the advisor has sent new certificate labels via First Class post for you with the instructions on how to place these in, we can appreciate that this is something that you should not have to do therefore please accept our apologies for this.

    If you need anything else please do not hesitate to contact us and again we are sorry that on this occasion this did happen with the order and the disappointment this has caused you.

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

For me this was a really good purchase, bought as a birthday present. It is very good quality and I purchased the gift box to go with it and is very sturdy and complements the book very well, I will purchase again and already have someone else in mind. Thank you for this brilliant idea.
