1895 Second Round Draw

The second round draw for the 1895 Cup took place this afternoon, and a few tasty ties were drawn out of the bag.

The two all-Championship matches that stand out are Halifax vs Sheffield Eagles and Widnes Vikings vs Featherstone Rovers.

The League One sides that made it through to the draw were Workington Town, Newcastle Thunder, Oldham and Doncaster.

None of these sides were gifted easy ties, with Workington perhaps the toughest. They must travel to Leigh Centurions.
