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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages 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.

BRILLIANT!! unique gift for my husband on our first wedding anniversary.Paper wedding anniversary, personalised book of newspaper articlesabout his favourite sport. One very happy husband.

gradstu Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 August

It was great to be able to find something that was aimed at a Rugby League fan rather than Rugby Union.This was bought as a 50th birthday present and I'm sure it will have the WOW factor that we were looking for.Unfortunately there was a slight hiccup when I ordered as I initially received the Rugby Union World Cup book, but a telephone call to customer services had it all sorted out without fuss and I received the correct book a few days later.I recommend this site to anyone looking for something unique and out of the ordinary.

I felt the book was good but for the price was quite disappointed with the size and that it was more like a pamphlet than a kids book. Wouldn’t order at full price and even £4.99 plus postage was quite expensive

First time buyer of "In The Book"

The book was exactly as described and promised in that the name of the child becomes part of the story with "In The Book". The hardbound book is a quality item and was delivered on time.
