Love Rugby League

The team at Love Rugby League have made their predictions for the Challenge Cup and 1895 Cup finals!

It’s a double header at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, kicking off with the 1895 Cup between Featherstone and Leigh at midday.

Huddersfield and Wigan then go head-to-head for the prestigious Challenge Cup final with a 3:00pm kick-off, live on the BBC.

James Gordon

Challenge Cup: Huddersfield by 4. I think it will be third time lucky for Ian Watson in finals. Tui Lolohea my pick for the Lance Todd trophy.

1895 Cup: Featherstone by 8. Brian Mac’s big game experience as a coach giving him the edge. Mark Kheirallah the Ray French trophy winner.

Drew Darbyshire

Challenge Cup: Wigan by 8. Matt Peet’s first win in a major final at the first time of asking. Man of the match for me will be Liam Farrell.

1895 Cup: Leigh by 2, Nene Macdonald man of the match. This will be a game to remember.

John Asiata: Leigh have reignited my love for rugby league again

George Riley

Challenge Cup: Wigan by 14. Kevin Brown told us if both sides bring their best games it will be too close to call. I disagree, if both sides are at the top of their games then Wigan win. Liam Farrell MOTM.

1895 Cup: Featherstone by 20. Nobody can get near them at the moment. Mark Kheirallah MOTM

Steven Hughes

Challenge Cup: I would say Wigan by 10 and Jai Field to win Lance Todd.

1895 Cup: I’ll go Featherstone by 14, Joey Leilua MOTM.

Jai Field Wigan Warriors Challenge Cup

Ben Olawumi

Challenge Cup: Wigan by 6, Field MoM. Travesty if they don’t win.

1895 Cup: Featherstone by 18, Johnathan Ford MOM. They’re just better than Leigh with quality overall.

Josh McAllister

Challenge Cup: Wigan by 14, with Jai Field running the show and winning Lance Todd.

1895 Cup: Featherstone by 10. Think they’ll have the overall stronger squad on the day.

James Messenger

Challenge Cup: Wigan by 10. Expect Matt Peet to clinch his first piece of major silverware since taking the helm at the Warriors. The absence of Theo Fages will be a huge blow for the Giants, despite the expected return of Will Pryce. MOM: Jai Field.

1895 Cup: Leigh by 8. A real clash of the titans, but the Centurions should be bolstered by the recent capture of Blake Ferguson. The former NRL star could play a major part in Saturday’s showpiece final. MOM: Blake Ferguson.
