It is a big weekend coming up for sport in Hull. Not only does Premier League football return to the city, but thousands of rugby league fans will be marching on Wembley as Hull FC hope to upset the odds by beating Wigan in the Challenge Cup final.

Hull: J Shaul; J Crookes, B Crooks, K Yeaman, T Briscoe; D Holdsworth, J Miller; M O'Meley, D Houghton, L Watts, G Ellis (capt), D Tickle, J Westerman. Subs: A Lynch, J Pitts, R Whiting, A Heremaia.
Wigan: S Tomkins; J Charnley, D Goulding, I Thornley, P Richards; B Green, M Smith; L Mossop, M McIlorum, B Flower, H Hansen, L Farrell, S O'Loughlin (capt). Subs: G Dudson, S Taylor, L Tomkins, C Tuson.

Hull FC take a walkabout at Wembley later ahead of their historic Challenge Cup final against the Wigan Warriors. Hundreds of fans saw them set of from the KC stadium yesterday.
The build up has begun in Hull for a huge weekend for Rugby League fans. Hull FC hit the road to Wembley this afternoon, as the team coach set off for the capital.
