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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • 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.

Bella Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 3 Aug 2021

Not impressed with customer service

I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?

    Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.

    Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
