Cup final replay venue decided

The RFL have confirmed that Bramall Lane in Sheffield will host the Carnegie Challenge Cup final replay should the match between Leeds and Wigan end in a draw.

The replay, should it need to be played, is scheduled for Wednesday September 7 with a 7.30pm kick-off.

The Challenge Cup final has gone to a replay on only three occasions in its 113-year history: in 1910, 1954 and most recently in 1982, when Hull FC defeated Widnes 18-9 at Elland Road, Leeds, after the sides drew 14-14 at Wembley.
