2016 Challenge Cup Final

Hull FC came from behind to take the 2016 Challenge Cup at Wembley Stadium. In a tight first half the only score came from Matty Russell, Kurt Gidley converted to put Warrington 6-0 up at half time. Warrington dominated the early stages after the break and went 10-0 up through a long range try from Ben Currie but in a moment that proved crucial Gidley missed the conversion. The momentum turned when Marc Sneyd landed a 40-20 kick and from the next set Mahe Fonua scored to put Hull right back in it. With Hull now on top and testing the Warrington line, Jamie Shaul went over to level and Sneyd kicked the extras to put Hull in the lead for the first time. Currie nearly got a dramatic late winning score for Warrington but he was brought down by a superb Danny Houghton tackle. It was the final act as Hull lifted the cup for the very first time at Wembley and will now look for more as they narrowly lead Warrington at the top of the Super League.
