Event Summary

Rugby League is born and bred in West Yorkshire. From its beginnings in Huddersfield in 1895 to the Super League superstars of today, celebrate over 120 years of blood, sweat and tears.

This special exhibition takes a close look at the clubs within the Wakefield district, Castleford Tigers, Featherstone Rovers and Wakefield Trinity as well as the clubs further afield in West Yorkshire.

The exhibition includes fantastic rugby-related objects from kits, balls and trophies to programmes, tickets and fan equipment. Highlights include the rugby shirt of legendary 1880s Wakefield Trinity player Harper Oliver Hamshaw, the ball with which Castleford’s Arthur ‘Brus’ Atkinson broke the record for the longest penalty kick in 1929, and the iconic Slazenger Torpedo rugby ball from the 1960 Rugby League Challenge Cup final at Wembley, when Wakefield Trinity beat Hull 38-5!

This exhibition is run in partnership with the West Yorkshire Local Authority Museum Partnership (WYLAMP) as part of We Are West Yorkshire. WYLAMP exists to champion culture and museums in West Yorkshire through a variety of mutually beneficial activities.
