Rugby League – Rhinos clash excites Radford

Hull FC head coach Lee Radford is relishing a Challenge Cup semi-final showdown with Leeds Rhinos, with a place at Wembley on the line. Hull are the current holders of the trophy and reached the last four this season with a 32-24 victory over Super League pacesetters Castleford Tigers on Sunday. Leeds booked their semi-final spot on Friday with a 58-0 demolition of Featherstone Rovers, with Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils completing the last-four line-up. And Radford is looking forward to a clash with Yorkshire rivals Leeds, as the season begins to move towards the business end. He told reporters: "This is the juicy part of the season, the excitement starts now. "Leeds will be a tough semi-final. I don't think we've beaten them in nine games, so it will be a challenging and tough Yorkshire derby, but these are the games to be involved in." Hull are available at 5/2 with bet365 to lift the Challenge Cup for a second successive season.
