Rugby league sides St Helens and Huddersfield have honoured those who played in the last Challenge Cup final before the end of the First World War.
 
Huddersfield's "team of all talents" ran out 37-3 victors 100 years ago in Oldham.
 
A century later the two teams are still in healthy competition, with St Helens currently four points above the Yorkshire side in the Super League.
 
But both clubs have now come together to honour those who played in the 1915 match with a commemoration service.
