Impossible Dream1980 Challenge Cup Final Captains Hall of Fame Heritage Roger Millward Video
The Impossible Dream video is a tribute to Roger Millward. His ‘Impossible Dream’ was to play at Wembley before he retired. He had achieved most things in rugby including victory over the ‘Unbeatable Foe’ (Australia) but his Wembley dream came true on May 3rd 1980. Despite sustaining a broken jaw in a tackle, Roger still managed to drop a goal and help his side to victory and achieve his ‘Impossible Dream’.
