    Default Challenge Cup 2018

    Still no date for next year's challenge cup final. Does anybody know what's happening?

    I would guess it's either going to be 25th Aug (holiday weekend) or 18th Aug

    Bank holiday weekends are a pain. Motorways and railways all closed for maintenance.

    I hope it's announced soon and I hope it's changed from August bank holiday.

    I don't think that's likely in imminent future, the TV agreement with the BBC fo August has a few more seasons to go.

    Don't forget Wembley Stadium is owned by the FA its up to them when we can use it

    I thought so TBH but it is odd they usually advertise Wembley tickets in the match programme and on the RFL website.

    Had a reality check the other day...

    2018 will make it 10 years since we were last in the challenge cup final. Not good enough. Wouldn't mind if we had been there at least once and lost, but we haven't even been close some years as well!

    Needs to be a priority this year for me.

    Not sure there's a lot we can do about it this year...

    If you get a couple of easy ties early on it can be the semis before you get a top side.
    On a given day we can beat any team ( we did last season)

    So we've as good a chance as anyone.

    Longest run without a Challenge Cup Final appearance since the era up to 1953. It really does need to be a priority next season. Who would ever have believed that would happen as we celebrated three wins in a row in the competition back on that hot summer's day in 2008?

    The last two years performances, regardless of the fact we were playing decent sides (you have to in order to win the thing!) were embarrassing. Stuffed by Cas and Hull.

    On the plus side, I remember going to that 2008 Cup Final and it all feeling rather routine. When we next get there it will be a special occasion.
