London calling as the Hull clubs clash

Hull KR might have came out on top, but 1980's Challenge Cup final against Hull FC was a victory for the region.

Hordes of fans from the banks of the River Hull made the trip to Wembley for the game.

Rovers ran out 10-5 winners under the old Twin Towers, marshalled by player-coach Roger Millward - who suffered a broken jaw in the process.

It was the first and only time the Robins bobbed to victory in the competition, while it was another missed opportunity for Hull to end their Wembley jinx - one which continues to this day.

You can see more archive footage on the BBC Super League Show, Monday nights in the north on BBC One, nationwide repeats Tuesday lunchtime on BBC Two and on the BBC iPlayer all week.
