World Club Challenge

The World Club Challenge (also previously called the World Club Championship) is an annual rugby league football match played between the champion clubs of the Australasian National Rugby League and the European Super League competitions. The first match of its kind was played in 1976 but it did not become a regular part of the World rugby league calendar until the late 1980s. The World Club Challenge's history was also punctuated by the 1990s' Super League war but has been held every pre-season since 2000. To date only English and Australian sides have competed in the World Club Challenge, which is played during the pre-season. Leeds Rhinos are the current champions, having defeated the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles 26 – 12 in the 2012 World Club Challenge.

Famous quotes containing the words challenge, world and/or club:

    The new American finds his challenge and his love in the traffic-choked streets, skies nested in smog, choking with the acids of industry, the screech of rubber and houses leashed in against one another while the townlets wither a time and die.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    Philosophers are people who do violence, but have no army at their disposal, and so subjugate the world by locking it into a system.
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)

    I think there ought to be a club in which preachers and journalists could come together and have the sentimentalism of the one matched with the cynicism of the other. That ought to bring them pretty close to the truth.
    Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)
