RUGBY: WIGAN WARRIORS TO PLAY HULL FC IN CHALLENGE CUP FINAL

Wigan Warriors will play Hull FC after beating Salford 27-14 in the Challenge Cup semi finals.

Hull FC overcame Leeds Rhinos in the other semi final and will face Wigan Warriors at Wembley.

The pair will also meet outside UK for the first time next year as they will battle it out in Australia.

The final means Wigan Warriors have reached their 31st Challenge Cup final and a repeat of their last visit to the stadium in 2013.

What the managers said

Wigan head coach Shaun Wane

“This feels fantastic, last year was tough to take, Salford are a champion club but to get back to Wembley is fantastic”.

“We’ve another job to do now. We did 20 minutes with 12 men, it’s unacceptable and we’ll fix it but we’ll enjoy it and get ready for Leeds now”.

“Salford made it a great game in testing conditions, it shows you what a great game rugby league is”.

Salford head coach Ian Watson

“It was a big effort by our boys, but these are the games players want to be involved in and we will be involved in these again.

“The more experience we can take from these games and learn from them the better, we’ve got to take the lessons from this into the Super 8s.

“It’s devastating, it’s a tough loss but we will focus on what we need to do for the rest of the year.”
