All the focus will be on Leeds Rhinos, Warrington Wolves, Widnes Vikings and Castleford Tigers this weekend when over a million sports fans will watch the thrilling race to decide which two clubs will reach the Tetley's Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday August 23.
Official semi-final programmes will be available at both games on Saturday when Warrington face Leeds at Langtree Park, St Helens (2.30) and at Sunday's sold-out showdown between Widnes and Castleford at Leigh Sports Village (3.00) and will feature 68-pages of full colour articles written by some of the best Rugby League writers from the national media.
The programme includes an interview with Leeds coach Brian McDermott as he outlines why a semi-final defeat for the Rhinos is his favourite Challenge Cup memory. Also, Warrington Wolves first team coach Willie Poching will be putting history aside while his team take on Leeds at the weekend.
Also in the programme, Denis Betts talks about his side’s chances against Castleford on Sunday and we take a look back at the 1986 Challenge Cup final and Castleford hero Bob Beardmore’s Lance Todd Trophy winning memories.
The official Tetley’s Challenge Cup semi-final programmes, priced at £5, will be available from sales points inside and outside Langtree Park and Leigh Sports Village on Saturday and Sunday.
