Rhinos 11/4 to upset Wigan in Challenge Cup Final

| 08.08.2011

Leeds are the 11/4 underdogs to lift the Challenge Cup according to Ladbrokes, following their bruising semi-final win.

The Rhinos meet favourites Wigan (1/4) in three weeks time at Wembley after completing an attritional comeback at unlucky Castleford.

Kevin Sinfield was the hero on a day of comebacks and slotted the winning kick in extra-time. He is 12/1 to be crowned man of the match at Wembley.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “Leeds have a lousy record in recent Challenge Cup finals but they might just believe that it’s their year after a last-gasp semi-final win.

The handicap mark for the final with Ladbrokes will be Leeds + 10 points.
