Challenge Cup: Army Rugby League Player Scores Twice In Semi-Final

Staff Sergeant Carrie Roberts was the match winner as St Helens booked a place in the final.

Army rugby league star Staff Sergeant Carrie Roberts put in an influential performance to take St Helens into the Women's Challenge Cup final.

SSgt Roberts scored two tries as her team beat Leeds Rhinos by 20-12 to book their place at the showpiece match.

The Army player scored the opening try of the match when she drove over in the corner.

Later in the second half, she confirmed the win when she collected the ball and ran for the line to score underneath the posts.

Amy Hardcastle scored the other two tries for St Helens and it could have been worse for Leeds if it wasn't for SSgt Roberts' Army teammate Tara Moxon's last-ditch tackle.

SSgt Roberts and St Helens will now play York City Knights in the final on 5 June.
