Heroes' welcome planned for Hull FC

Players and staff of Hull FC will get a heroes' welcome tomorrow when they return to the city for a civic reception after yesterday's victory in the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final.

The Black & Whites came from behind to beat Warrington 12-10 in a nailbiting finish to rid themselves of their Wembley hoodoo - much to their fans' delight.

Lizzie Jones to present Challenge Cup trophy

  • Duncan Wood and Christine Talbot speak to Lizzie Jones

Lizzie Jones, the widow of rugby player Danny Jones, will be guest of honour at the Challenge Cup final on Saturday and present the trophy to the winning team.

The singer, who has fronted a hugely successful campaign to purchase defibrillators for community and junior clubs in memory of her late husband, performed Abide With Me at last year's final.

Her husband, the Keighley Cougars and Wales international half-back collapsed and died from an undiagnosed heart condition while playing against London Skolars last May.
