Widnes and Sheffield look to roll back years at Wembley

Widnes Vikings and Sheffield Eagles will go head to head in the second game of a bumper day at Wembley in the inaugural 1895 Cup.

For the Vikings, this is a real highlight after a turbulent season, which saw real doubts that the Cheshire club would be able to complete the season.

But everyone around the club rallied and reaching a Wembley Final is a huge testament to how far the Vikings have come in a short space of time.

As for Sheffield, they make a first appearance at Wembley since they created one of the biggest shocks in Challenge Cup history when they beat Wigan Warriors to lift the Challenge Cup in 1998.

Both sides will be hoping to enjoy their days in the sun in the capital.

Kick off is at 5.30pm.
