October 1, 1968 on BBC 2: Floodlit Rugby League Competition

20:00 – Floodlit Rugby League Competition

LEEDS v. SALFORD (blue and (red) amber)

for the BBC-2 Trophy

The first match of the first round direct from Headingley, Leeds

  • Commentator, Eddie Waring

This year’s competition gets off to a glittering start with Leeds meeting Salford at Headingley – scene of last year’s epic final between Leigh and Castleford.

Leeds won the Rugby League Challenge Cup at Wembley in May in a controversial waterlogged final after a superb season. And big-spending Salford are maintaining their position as Lancashire’s most exciting club by signing players like former British Lions captain David Watkins.

The Floodlit Competition has emerged as Rugby League’s ‘ mini-cup ‘— and this time the absolute cream of the Northern game are lined up to compete. Thrills and fierce rivalry are guaranteed.
