Reviews

There was no point in backing Leeds to win this match. The Yorkshire giants featured 14 internationals in their side, and you d have had to stake £9 just to win £1 in return.

However, even the biggest underdogs have their day and Leigh, in their only Wembley appearance to date on 15<sup>th</sup> May 1971, surely provided the greatest Challenge Cup Final upset of all time.

Leigh s player coach Alex Murphy, one of the games most colourful and controversial characters, was the game s central figure, scoring two drop goals before being taken from the field on a stretcher after an apparent head butt by Sid Hynes. Murphy, later named man of the match, claimed he couldn t remember collecting either trophy, while Hines became the first man in Wembley history to be shown a red card.

Enjoy the whole of 1971 Challenge Cup Final, including post match celebrations and interviews.
