Ask your Northern Friends
We know the Rhinos have a dreadful record in Challenge Cup finals. Since their 1999 win over London they’ve been to five and lost every single one of them. Most pundits think that whilst they might have been able to upset Wigan in the semi-final, they have precious little hope of creating a second upset. Yet if there is one club that have shown an ability to defy logic this season, (and at the end of last season too), then it is the Rhinos.
Their results have included some ridiculous calamities like the 50 point mauling at home to Wigan at the start of June, and at one time the coach’s future was even being questioned as they struggled along not even being certain of qualifying for the play-offs. But things have come together steadily, and running 68 points past Widnes a fortnight ago was a reminder of that.
