Leeds Rhinos and Argonauts Skeleton Army to meet in Wheelchair Challenge Cup final once again

Leeds Rhinos Wheelchair Rugby League team booked their place in the 2021 Betfred Wheelchair Challenge Cup Final after five successive victories in the Plate competition this weekend.

The Rhinos will face familiar foes Argonauts Skeleton Army in a repeat of the 2019 showpiece, which they won 74-46 to claim their first Wheelchair Challenge Cup title.

The two sides secured their passage to the Final by navigating all round-robin competition on Saturday involving all Super League clubs, with the Rhinos topping the table and Argonauts placing second.

After defeating North Wales Crusaders 34-0 in their opening game, the Rhinos stepped it up a level to claim a momentous 20-12 victory over local rivals and current Wheelchair Super League holders Halifax Panthers.

That was followed by a 16-6 win over fellow finalists Argonauts Skeleton Army, before rounding off the day’s play by taking down Leyland Warriors 24-0 and Hull FC 30-6 to remain unbeaten and cruise into another Challenge Cup Final.

The final takes place on 3 July at Sheffield’s English Institute of Sport and for the first time will be shown live on the BBC Sport website.
