Leeds vs Wakefield Trinity, Rugby League Challenge Cup Final 11.05.1968 Programme

£10.00

Product description

Leeds vs Wakefield Trinity
Rugby League Challenge Cup Final 11.05.1968 Programme.

The 1968 Challenge Cup Final was a rugby league match contested between Leeds and Wakefield Trinity on 11 May 1968 at Wembley Stadium in London. It was the 67th final of English rugby league's primary cup competition, the Challenge Cup. The match is also known as the "Watersplash Final" due to the state of the waterlogged pitch caused by heavy downpours both before and during the game.

The final is best remembered for Wakefield's Don Fox missing a conversion from in front of the posts in the last minute of the game, handing Leeds an 11–10 victory. It was the club's eighth Challenge Cup win, and the first since 1957. Fox was the winner of the Lance Todd Trophy, as he had already been voted as man of the match before his miss.

Programme in excellent condition.
