The Betfred Men’s Challenge Cup Final will return to Wembley Stadium on Saturday 12 August 2023 as Hull KR face Leigh Leopards.
To many who don’t follow British rugby league this event will offer little interest.
But to the many in Eurobodalla who have been following the career of Moruya born, Rhys Kennedy, it will put a smile on their faces knowing that Rhys is enjoying his time in the UK playing for Hull KR.
