It’s Wembley week

St. Helens Women will be looking to retain the Betfred Women's Challenge Cup against rivals Leeds Rhinos Women at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon!

HISTORY AWAITS

For the first time ever, the Women’s Challenge Cup will be played at Wembley Stadium alongside the Men’s Final, as the 1895 Cup Final too.

Both Saints and Leeds have etched their names in the history books by reaching the last two, but only one can be the winner of this first Final to be played at the national stadium. Should Saints get the job done too, they will have won the Challenge Cup for an incredible three straight years.

SQUAD DEPARTURE DETAILS

Fans wishing to get behind the team, make some noise and give the team a memorable send-off can do so on Friday morning!

Our Women’s player will be leaving the Totally Wicked Stadium at 9:30am on Friday.

WEARING THE FAMOUS RED V AT WEMBLEY

In the Club’s 150th anniversary year, the Saints Women will be wearing our 2023 Home Kit on the biggest stage, the same kit they wore in a remarkable Semi-Final win over York Valkyrie.

OUR ROUTE TO THE FINAL

Matty Smith’s Women had a more complex route to the final four, with the group stage played first.

After getting wins over London Broncos, Castleford Tigers and Warrington Wolves – the Saints finished first in Group Three of the competition.

  • London Broncos Ladies 0-76 St Helens Women – Saturday, 22nd April
  • Castleford Tigers Women 0-106 St Helens Women – Sunday, 7th May
  • St Helens Women 38-4 Warrington Wolves Women – Sunday, 21st May

By coming top of the group, the Saints earned a home quarter-final and drew another game against the Wolves Women, which Smiths’ side won comfortably 36-0 on Sunday, 18th June. The Red V were then drawn against York Valkyrie for the Semi-Final on Saturday, 22nd July and in a true rugby league classic it went right down to the wire at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

With 40 seconds left, the scores tied at 16-16, up stepped Faye Gaskin who after two tough years dealing and rehabbing from injury, the Saints’ #7 slotted over the winning drop goal to send St. Helens to Wembley!

Head Coach Matty Smith, Captain Jodie Cunningham, Tara Jones and Emily Rudge on Monday afternoon spoke to lots of members of the meida to preview the huge game in the capital against Leeds.
