Huddersfield to be location for replay if needed on Saturday

The John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield will host the replay of the 2015 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final on Tuesday September 8 should the scores be level at full-time in Saturday’s final between Hull Kingston Rovers and Leeds Rhinos at Wembley Stadium.

The Challenge Cup final is the only Rugby League match that goes to a replay rather than be decided on the day by golden point in extra time.

The replay will kick off at 8.00pm with live coverage on BBC Two from 7.30pm.

This year’s First Utility Super League matches between Leeds and Hull KR have been close encounters with the Rhinos narrowly winning each one

Details of ticket availability and prices for the replayed final at John Smith’s Stadium will be announced on Sunday in the event of a draw.
