Ryan Hall: Would swap this season's tries for success at Wembley
Leeds Rhinos winger Ryan Hall would swap all 30 of his tries this season if it meant the Super League champions were to win the Challenge Cup on Saturday.
Brian McDermott's men take on the high-flying Warrington Wolves in the final at Wembley looking to win a trophy they last secured against the London Broncos in 1999.
Hall has been a regular try-scorer for Leeds this term, including a double in last weekend's 38-34 loss to the Catalan Dragons, but it is success that the 24-year-old craves.
"I've said it's not about me, it's the team winning. I would swap all 30 tries to get a winners medal on Saturday."

"I've said it's not about me, it's the team winning. I would swap all 30 tries to get a winners medal on Saturday," he added.
"I don't know if we promote being down to earth, but that's how the players are. You get brought up that way, you don't see anyone doing it, so you don't tend to do it yourself. It's the way you live your life."
On Hall's last visit to Wembley he scored two breath-taking tries albeit in defeat for England against Australia last November and the winger is not expecting to score against the Wolves, just hoping for a positive result.
"I don't think about it too much before a game, but history suggests I perform well in big games, scoring crucial tries and it just comes to me," he continued.
"If you think you're going to score loads of tries in a final, it won't happen. It's really nice thinking of the tries I've scored, such as the ones against Australia, but the hurt after the game is not a nice feeling and I want to put those wrongs right."
