Finally, after 11 years of waiting the Rhinos are back at Wembley, and its been a long time coming!
At the beginning of this season, I said to myself "what would I prefer, a Challenge Cup final, or another trip to Old Trafford". I am still hurting from the 2005 final, losing 25 - 24 to Hull FC at Millennium Stadium, and this years final looks to be just as much of a classic as that one was.
The two teams that will take the field on Saturday at Wembley are in my opinion the best rugby playing sides in the Superleague, when they are on form that is. The fans from both clubs are very passionate and will be singing for the whole 80 minutes.
Fingers crossed that Bluey will pick the right squad for the game, but I would go: Webb, Smith, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Bailey, Jones-Buchanan, Clarkson, Sinfield. Diskin, Eastwood, Lauiti'iti, and Ablett.
Lets hope that Mr Silverwood and Mr Smith have their glasses on, especially after Smith's blunder at the Saints game last week, and lets hope that we have a clean flowing game, and come home with the trophy!
Come on you Rhinos!
