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.

Shipping takes forever but...

I recieved my book without ever knowing it had shipped. The tracking service did not work one time with my order. I ordered this well in advance of a birthday party and was greatful I did so since it took over 3 weeks to receive. That being said....the book is beautiful and exactly what i was expecting. The entire family loves it.

Nilani Chandan Trustpilot product review 3 star rating 17 Jan 2021

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged

There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.
