Since Hull won the cup in 2005 we have had 7 Lancs V Yorks cup finals.

 

2006 St. Helens V Huddersfield

2008 St. Helens V Hull

2009 Warrington V Huddersfield

2010 Warrington V Leeds

2011 Wigan V Leeds

2012 Warrington v Leeds

2013 Wigan V Hull

 

Score so far......Lancashire 7 Yorkshire 0. I wonder what the magic formula is that seems to be giving the teams from the west of the pennines the edge on the big day? Some quality opposition from Yorkshire,but each and every time they have fallen flat on their faces when it mattered,most notably Leeds,who usually then went on to win the Grand Final. Have they just been outplayed/outcoached on the day like Warrington V Leeds in 2010, outclassed( Saints V Hudds in 2006)or is there an underlying factor as to why they just can't win at Wembley?   


2009 Warrington 25 Hudderfield 16
2010 Warrington 30 Leeds 6
2011 League Leaders Shield Winners
2012 Warrington 35 Leeds 18

Challenge cups and league leaders shields everywhere! We need more silver polish!

We don't like Wembley!

Our northern principles are sacrosanct, you red rosers can stick it up...

Now as for Old Trafford, it's great to steal a trophy from under your nose.

By and large i concider Yorkshire to be a far superior county to what's left of Lancashire, but they do have a point regarding the CCup, Not being a Cricket fan i don't know how that would stack up, Being even less of a Soccer fan though I seem to have been hearing all my life about great Football teams and without looking into it there seems to have been a large proportion of them from Lancashire, Not just the Man U, Liverpool era's either, Blackpool, Preston, Bolton, Blackburn Man City, all seem to have had great teams at some point,

There have been one or two good sides in Yorkshire, Sheffields, Leeds, even Town were once a great side i believe, but by and large Lancashire seems to me to have enjoyed a fair amount of domination in that sport and in view of the popularity of soccer over the hill, it just makes their accomplishments in League all the more impressive, I don't know what the actual count is for either the CC or the Championship, I will look it up when i can be bothered, I expect i shall discover we have been robbed :ph34r:

For those of us born before 1974 we still think red rose Lancashire.... and I hope they still do the Battle of Bosworth in Schools in those their area's.   

 

Mind you I live in Yorkshire now,  and for some reason failed in that my wife and daughters are avid Leeds fans - that comes of going to the nearest SL ground to watch the game. Although me son helps me keep them in check as we still support the old team from St Helens...

What do you mean sub-counties? Coming from South Warrington that's been Cheshire since before 1974. Ship canal used to be the border from what I'm told by parents.

Warrington was in Lancashire in 1840, when the boundary was the Mersey (which makes sense geographically, if you think about it).

The Mersey is north of the ship canal so it still sounds like a lof if South Warrington is has been in Cheshire historically.
