This weekend's all-Yorkshire Challenge Cup Final between Leeds Rhinos and Castleford Tigers is expected to be a close encounter.
In preparation, organisers have already announced that should the scores finish level, Sheffield United's Brammall Lane will be used to host a replay between the sides on 3 September.
This year’s final is expected to be a close encounter, with the two teams drawing 24-24 in a First Utility Super League fixture at Leeds in July and the Rhinos only beating Castleford by eight points back in May.
The last time a Challenge Cup final went to a replay was the 1982 final between Hull FC and Widnes, when the original game at Wembley ended deadlocked at 14-14. The replay was staged to Elland Road, the home of Leeds United, and finished in a Hull FC victory, 18-9.
the most famous replay in Rugby League history was the Challenge Cup final replay held at Odsal Stadium in Bradford in 1954, which is well known for its attendance of over 102,000 supporters.
The game ended with a score line of 8-4 in favour of Warrington, who had drawn 4-4 with Halifax in the original final.
The last time Castleford and Leeds met in the Challenge Cup was in the 2011 semi-finals when once again the final score was extremely close, finishing in a 10-8 victory for the Rhinos.
