Posted on August 30, 2018

Good morning fellow readers, if you haven’t heard last week the French team Catalan Dragons who are a Rugby League Football Club made history after winning the famous Challenge Cup Trophy. This prestigious trophy is what every club has their eyes on with it being a memorable piece of history.

To say Catalan were in relegation zone last year to only go and win the well-known cup is a huge achievement for them. It was a tough contest this final though, as the opponents Warrington Wolves didn’t go down without a fight. I’m sure you all tuned in at your Cube TV Unit to catch that piece of history and be able to say you had seen it all live.

The Challenge Cup has been part of Rugby League for many years and is a competition where all clubs no matter their league hit off in a tournament to see who’s the best. Now, this is the first time ever a French club has won this tournament which is why it’s so special.

The first ever team to win the prestigious cup was none other than local Batley Bulldogs. Isn’t always great when you are part of a town that has such rich history. Now, Batley isn’t known for much however when stunning things like this happen it truly does ‘put us on the map’ so to speak.

So as we look onto next years tournament who could be crowned the winners of the next cup? Will it be the Catalan Dragons again or an amateur side like Shaw Cross Sharks? Remember, sport is a funny game and anything can happen.


Anyway, see you tomorrow for the next daily blog here at Cube Furniture. Have a good Thursday, I’m sure you’ll all be eagerly waiting for Friday with excitement. Weekend, weekend, weekend!
