More Information1965 CHALLENGE CUP FINAL - Hunslet v WIGAN
Hunslet and Wigan met in the 1965 Rugby League
Challenge Cup Final at Wembley and produced a classic.
This ‘nostalgia’ DVD lets you relive that famous match at the Empire Stadium. See Rugby League under the old
unlimited tackle rules produce some spectacular tries, with legends of the game like Billy Boston, Eric Ashton and
Brian McTigue on the Wigan side. Not to be denied were the brave lads of Hunslet, captained by Fred Ward and with stars of their own in Brian Gabbitas, Geoff Gunney, Geoff Shelton and goal- kicking full-back Billy Langton.
NOTE: This DVD is in black and white from the days when television camera work and production
standards did not enjoy the kind of technology modern
audiences take for granted - but the occasion is a famous day in the history of Wembley Challenge Cup Finals.
