Synopsis:
Almost 96,000 people watched on beneath the twin towers and witnessed a war of the roses between holders Leeds and St. Helens become one of the all-time classic Wembley Finals. The men from Yorkshire retained their crown in memorable style, after an early mistake had contributed to them falling behind by ten points. The biggest Wembley fight back to date began when a sensational try from John Atkinson, playing in his fifth final, was followed by a towering kick from the touchline by Willie Oulton. Scores by David Smith and Phil Cookson followed, before Leeds snatched the silverware with a drop goal from John Holmes minutes from time.
On the day, they led the match for just five minutes, but crucially it was the final five minutes.
