Hull FC win Challenge Cup

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

What a dramatic Challenge Cup final we were lucky enough to witness today.

Thanks for joining me - there's just the small matter of a Super League title to dish out over the next six weeks, and BBC Sport will have live text and radio coverage of the season's climax.

For now though, Wembley and Challenge Cup glory belong to Hull FC. If you missed any of the action, catch up with Ged Scott's report from Wembley...

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

What a cheer when Lee Radford lifts the trophy!

He's had to go through some tough times as head coach of Hull, but the club are on the up and up. They could easily win a treble this year.

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

Hull FC captain Gareth Ellis has seen so much in his glittering rugby league career but he's never lifted the Challenge Cup before.

He has now. Wonderful scenes at Wembley.

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

The Hull players are heading up the Wembley steps and are about to get their hands on the Challenge Cup for the first time in 11 years.

I'd imagine that's a nice feeling.

Reaction: Hull win Challenge Cup

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

Warrington head coach Tony Smith on BBC One: "It's a game of inches sometimes and we probably just allowed them back in with a couple of errors.

"We did a good job on pressurising Marc Sneyd in the first half, but he came up with two or three really big kicks. They can be the difference."

That Danny Houghton tackle on Ben Currie will be an iconic moment in the Challenge Cup.

Shaul's try wins it for Hull

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

This is the match-winning moment - Jamie Shaul's late try for Hull FC...

Reaction: Hull win Challenge Cup

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

Hull FC coach Lee Radford on BBC One: "We've beaten Saints, Catalans, Wigan and Warrington. I don't think anyone can begrudge us. I'm so proud."

Reaction: Hull win Challenge Cup

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

Hull FC centre Mahe Fonua on BBC One: "It's good to put that Wembley hoodoo to rest. It's great to be a part of it."

Captain Gareth Ellis: To come from 10-0 down in a tough game, the lads worked so hard. It means so much. I'm lost for words."

Reaction: Hull win Challenge Cup

FT: Hull 12-10 Warrington

Hull FC half-back and man of the match Marc Sneyd on BBC One: "It took us a while to get into that, but we came out after half-time with a great attitude, rattled them and took our chances."

What a final. What a final.

Hull FC end that Wembley hoodoo - they come from 10-0 down to win the 2016 Challenge Cup!

Hull 12-10 Warrington

One minute to play. One more set of six for Warrington.

Commentator, BBC One

Danny Houghton has made over 1,000 tackles this season - that's the most important of them right there.

Hull 12-10 Warrington

Heartbreak for Warrington. Heartbreak for Ben Currie. He breaks through two tackles and gets to the line, but the ball spills out of his grasp. Maybe the Challenge Cup has, too.

How on earth have Hull survived there? With a wonderful tackle by Danny Houghton, that's how. Awesome.

Hull 12-10 Warrington

Hull are just doing what they need to at the moment - using up time with their set of six, then kicking deep and asking Warrington to run 90 metres to score a try.

John Kear

Batley and Wales coach, BBC One

Kurt Gidley missed those two kicks earlier in the second half for Warrington and he just didn't strike either with any confidence or conviction.

Hull 12-10 Warrington

It's worth mentioning again that Hull have only won the Challenge Cup three times in their history, and none of those victories have come at Wembley.

They're five minutes away from ending one of rugby league's most famous hoodoos.

We said Warrington might have stopped playing, now they have to start playing.

TRY - Hull 12-10 Warrington

Jamie Shaul, Marc Sneyd goal

Jamie Shaul may never have to buy another drink in Hull ever again.

Marc Sneyd's high kick is tapped back and worked to Shaul, who touches down under the posts. But that's only 10-10 - Sneyd has to kick the goal to put Hull in front for the first time in the final.

Nerves of steel from Hull's number seven. The Black and Whites lead!

Hull fans are hugging in the stands. They think that might be the match-winner.

Whoever you support, even if you're a neutral, nerves are really beginning to stretch here.

Hull 6-10 Warrington

Ten minutes left and we're still no closer to finding a winner in the 2016 Challenge Cup final.

Warrington's Stefan Ratchford knocks on at the play-the-ball. Hull have it 30 metres out. Maybe this will be the moment to settle it.

Jonathan Davies

You've got to catch it on the full. If the ball's in the air for 50 yards, someone's got to catch it.

Nobody in a Hull shirt wanted that ball.

Hull 6-10 Warrington

Big. Big, big, big for Warrington.

Stefan Ratchford's goal-line dropout sails 50 metres and almost into touch. Fetuli Talanoa knocks it on as he tries to prevent it going out of play.

After saving a try, Ratchford has got the Wolves on the front foot.

Richard Stead

Commentator, BBC Radio Humberside

Warrington are looking really tired at the moment, Hull, on the other hand, look inspired.

With just four points in it, this game is still up for grabs.

NO TRY

Hull 6-10 Warrington

Has Steve Michaels got the ball down in the corner for Hull? It goes up to video referee Ben Thaler...

"No try" was the signal from on-field official Gareth Hewer, and Thaler agrees.

Michaels a fingernail away from levelling the scores. Stefan Ratchford with the defensive intervention.

Hull 6-10 Warrington

More injury problems for Warrington. Veteran forward Ben Westwood has an issue with his shoulder and is off down the tunnel.

Hull 6-10 Warrington

More news on Kurt Gidley, who has a large cut on his head and a "touch of concussion" according to Tanya Arnold on BBC One.

It's unlikely we'll see the Warrington half-back again in this final.

Jonathan Davies

Ex-Great Britain international, BBC One

Why not target the small man in the corner and put it up in the air? Great execution of that kick there from Hull.

TRY - Hull 6-10 Warrington

Mahe Fonua, Marc Sneyd goal

It may be the momentum changer!

Marc Sneyd puts up a wonderful high kick, which Hull centre Mahe Fonua gleefully grabs before touching down over the try line.

I slated Fonua earlier for wasting a real opportunity for Hull, but he's given his side a fighting chance.

Sneyd kicks the goal from the touchline, and the gap is down to four points. We've got a REAL game on now.

40-20 kick for Hull

Hull 0-10 Warrington

BBC One's John Kear says this could be a momentum changer, and he may be right. Marc Sneyd kicks a 40-20 for Hull and the Black and Whites get the ball inside Warrington territory.

They need to make the most of it against a Wire side now without Kurt Gidley with that head knock.

BBC Sport at Wembley

One particularly welcome sight at Wembley today is the presence of Gary Carter, the Sun's rugby league reporter.

He was attacked in a London street and left in a coma for a month following a horrific assault last year.

But the smiling Gary has recovered remarkably well and is here to report at Wembley for the first time since the incident, with wife Gemma alongside to hold his hand.

Hull 0-10 Warrington

Memories of 2013 and failing to score against Wigan at Wembley may start to come flooding back for Hull, who remain without any points.

Hull have players who can create a bit of magic from nothing, like full-back Jamie Shaul and hooker Danny Houghton.

The Super League leaders need something soon, otherwise the Challenge Cup will be heading back to Warrington.

Warrington half-back Kurt Gidley is receiving treatment for a head wound so there's a stoppage in play for the moment.

Hull 0-10 Warrington

John Kear

Batley and Wales coach, BBC One

We asked who was going to crack first and it was Hull. 

That was absolute quality by Daryl Clark first to spot the break, and then Ben Currie to be there to spot the offload and round it off with the finish.

TRY - Hull 0-10 Warrington

Ben Currie

Is that the match-clincher? If so, it's one to remember for Warrington and Ben Currie.

The outstanding Daryl Clark breaks past a tiring Hull defensive line and feeds Currie, a second-rower, who shows the speed of a winger to outpace Jamie Shaul and dive over in the left corner.

Kurt Gidley's kick is wide and short, so the lead stays at 10 points.

Hull 0-6 Warrington

John Kear

Batley and Wales coach, BBC One

This just goes to show you don't need 30 points to 24 to make it a great game.

When there's the desire from both sets of players in a cauldron like this, it makes for a great event.
