The Final Hooter 2019 - Episode 23

It's our Challenge Cup Final preview episode.

Dave is in musical mood and looking forward to the finals with his plans from home while Adrian lets Widnes getting to this stage of the inaugural 1895 Cup Final get to his head.

He risks upsetting Canadian and Welsh folk alike and we have a discussion about silver salvers.

Amid the banter there are a few Challenge Cup memories and previous matches thrown in, a whirlwind look around the leagues and Steve Manning was our man posing the questions as we hear from Justin Holbrook, Steve Price, Johnny Lomax and Toby King.
