The weekend may still be a while away but that hasn’t stopped fans of Hull KR and Leeds Rhinos getting into the party spirit.

Those two teams will meet at Wembley Stadium on Saturday for a chance to lift the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and fans across Yorkshire have wasted no time in showing their support for the Rhinos and Rovers players.

Here we look at the best of social media in the build up to the final…

As sponsors of the cup we got the ball rolling with a few behind the scenes pictures from media day at Doncaster Racecourse…

Salford Red Devils owner Marwan Koukash is never shy of dividing opinion and he did just that with his tweet at the start of the week asking fans who they think will win…  


No prizes for guessing who Rhinos fan Ciara Brannigan voted for, the office worker left her colleagues in little doubt as to where her allegiance lies with this partisan decorating job…

 

While she was busy supporting her side from the comfort of her desk, however, Hull KR fans turned out in full force to see the squad onto the bus that will carry them down to the capital…  


Not to be outdone, Rhinos fans descended on Headingley en masse to wish the Super League leaders good luck ahead of the final…

 

 And with this many people showing up just to wave off the buses how many can be expected to pile into the national stadium?
