FOR this week's Tuesday Tonic, we're turning the pages back to 2010 when Warrington Wolves made history.

They had never successfully defended the Challenge Cup before but completed back-to-back wins in incredible style that year against Leeds Rhinos, who face Salford Red Devils in this Saturday's cup final at Wembley behind closed doors after squaring up to The Wire in Super League this evening.

The 30-6 win against Leeds Rhinos was a record margin of victory for The Wire in any final.

And yet, even as the holders and enjoying a strong league campaign, they went into it as underdogs.

That Leeds side, packed with international stars, had been crowned Super League champions for the past three years and were at the peak of their powers with their golden generation of homegrown talent - the likes of Kevin Sinfield, Danny McGuire, Rob Burrow, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Ryan Bailey alongside overseas recruits like Brent Webb and Kylie Leuluai.

For The Wire to dismantle them in the way that they did, on the sport's biggest stage in front of the biggest cup final crowd (85,217) since 1988, was an incredible achievement.
