Categorised under the topic of Sports.

That this House congratulates Leeds Rhinos on its victory in the 2014 Challenge Cup Final, defeating Castleford Tigers 23-10 at Wembley Stadium; further congratulates both teams on a superb match which showed rugby league at its best; commiserates with Castleford Tigers on its loss despite showing great tenacity in the final; commends Leeds Rhinos on winning its 12th Challenge Cup Final, its first after a 15 year break since then having been runners up six times; particularly extends its congratulations to both Kevin Sinfield MBE for getting to lift the trophy as he caps off a decorated career, and winger Ryan Hall for winning the Lance Todd trophy as Man of the Match; notes that it is particulary fitting for the Rhinos to win the Cup in the year that Leeds celebrates the 150th anniversary of the first rugby match in the city; recognises the great dedication of players, coaches and backroom staff; also recognises the great dedication and loyalty of the 77,914 Yorkshire fans who travelled to Wembley for Challenge Cup Final day; and hopes this victory will provide a springboard for more Rhinos silverware in the very near future and inspires a generation of new rugby league players in Leeds and around the country.

This motion has been signed by a total of 2 MPs.
