Early morning queues for Rhinos Challenge Cup final tickets

Leeds Rhinos fans were queuing from as early as 7 o'clock this morning to get their hands on tickets for the Challenge Cup final at the end of the month.

The Rhinos booked their place in rugby league's showpiece event thanks to a 24-14 victory over St Helens.

It will be the fifth time in the past six years the Rhinos have played at Wembley but last year's win was their only triumph since 1999.

This year’s Wembley showcase on Saturday 29th August is almost 120 years to the day since the meeting at the George Hotel in Huddersfield that signaled the formation of Rugby League and Leeds will revert back to their traditional colours for the day.

Leeds wore a white kit when they first lifted the Challenge Cup back in 1910 and 105 years later, they will once again wear white on the biggest day of the year whilst incorporating the club’s famous blue and amber bands in the design.

The Rhinos beat St Helens 24-14 to reach their fifth Challenge Cup final in six years.
