Matt Dufty was on fire, scoring two tries to lead Warrington Wolves to a Wembley final showdown under the leadership of newbie coach, Sam Burgess.

The team's dominant performance against Huddersfield Giants at Totally Wicked Stadium marked their first Betfred Challenge Cup final appearance since 2019.

In a display reminiscent of past glory days, Warrington's eight tries saw them overpowering their opponents and securing a date with Wigan Warriors at Wembley next month.

This victory was a significant milestone for head coach Sam Burgess, who fell short in his own playing bid for the knockout showpiece back in 2007 with Bradford Bulls.

Matty Ashton's lightning speed on the left wing set the tone early on, with a seamless passing sequence leading to scrum-half Josh Drinkwater opening the scoring.

The Wolves' relentless attack kept the pressure on throughout, with Dufty's stellar performance shining bright like a beacon on the field.

Meanwhile, Leeds Rhinos will once again square off against St Helens in the women's final, setting the stage for a thrilling rematch after defeating Wigan Warriors in their semi-final.

The upcoming Wembley finals promise to be action-packed and filled with heart-pounding moments as these teams battle it out for glory.
