Rugby European Champions Cup Final


Recommended Posts

It's at St James next year for those that don't know. Tickets went on sale at 10am on the NUFC website. There's still a load of £20 tickets available pitchisde in the Gallowgate and Leazes. I don't even like rugby but for that price I've got 2

I can't get away with Rugby League if I'm honest but there was a good programme at the weekend about the 1968 Challenge Cup Final. People might've seen it before as it's the one that's (in)famous for man of the match Don Fox missing a last minute conversion. The conditions were absolutely fucking ridiculous on a waterlogged Wembley pitch which would've made playing football on it impossible (it was barely possible to play rugby on it). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1968_Challenge_Cup_Final

I think it used to be one of the '100 Great Sporting Moments' (the 10 minute short films that used to be shown on the Beeb when they had a short time slot to fill).

This is rugby union ;)

 

Although I probably prefer League between the 2.

 

The Falcons are in the champions cup next season for the first time in ages so they might even end up in the final 

I thought it was odd the Challenge Cup final wasn't being played at Wembley. It did originally say that, didn't it? Or am I losing the plot?

The programme about the 1968 final is available on iPlayer for a while if you're interested btw. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0b3g9q1/rugby-leagues-legendary-watersplash-final
