Time is definitely what it needs, give it five years at the very least 

My only concern is it becomes a bit FA Trophy in that the ambitious clubs ( Who will want to focus for SL promotion) wont care about it.

But it is middle of season and if it leads to emerging or re-emerging teams getting a profile boost (Newcastle havent been yet , Bulls getting there) then I am all for it.

Great game. Flew by. Congratulations to Fev but also to both teams and clubs. Why the bbc don’t show that on terrestrial tv is beyond me. 

It is on the red button.

Really enjoyable game that, with loads of ex-Trinity interest but I did favour my local side Fev between the two.  Watching without commentary so it took me a while to cotton on to David March though.

One thing that always stands out for me, and was clearly demonstrated after the final hooter camera shots, is how fans react to a defeat in complete contrast to players.

Strange not being down in Wembley for the 2nd year in a row.

I think both teams should be happy. Fev are the better team and showed it, but York gave a good showing, gave their fans plenty to cheer and some of those players will have memories for life. 

Great start to the day.

Obviously as a FEV fan delighted with the outcome but once again disappointed with the RFL treating the championship as second class citizens No video ref  in a final when quite clearly one was needed for one of the tries 

It's not like they would have to bring someone in  for the game they were already there  sat in the stands waiting for the CC final

True. But in terms of spreading the word and spotlighting a great piece of sport it would probably have reached more people on the main channel instead of hidden away.

And then people would have complained about footage of an almost empty stadium.

If anybody missed what was a really good cup final, it is being repeated on the red button in a few minutes.

Well done Fev and York 👏👍

It's a huge 90k stadium, must have been about 10k minimum in for the 1895, maybe only 1 or 2k neutrals. I think half the Fev fans left after they lifted Cup. Then 42k in for CC, about 6k of which was in for 1st game. (Quite a gap between 1 game finishing and next game starting.) I've been to Summer Bashes but only stayed for Fev Game, stayed for both today but two is certainly max for me, don't know how ppl can watch 3 live games on same day at Magic Weekend and Summer Bash.
