Coral Challenge Cup Fifth Round Draw

The lowest ranked Super League sides entered the Coral Challenge Cup at the Fifth Round stage with League One and Championship sides looking for a good home tie.

The fixture between Whitehaven and Dewsbury Rams was postponed due to an unplayable pitch. This means that either one of these sides could face Newcastle Thunder up in the North East.

Sheffield Eagles were rewarded with a home tie against Workington after overcoming Halifax 20-18 on Saturday.

League One side, Rochdale Hornets, overcame the British Army to end their fairytale run, and will face York City Knights in the next round

With four Super League teams in the draw, there was a slim chance of an all-Super League tie, and an all-Super League tie is what we got.

The currently unbeaten Huddersfield Giants will face the so far winless Toronto Wolfpack.

Wakefield Trinity will welcome West Yorkshire rivals Bradford Bulls to Belle Vue with Leigh Centurions travelling to Hull Kingston Rovers.

The remaining ties of the round include Widnes Vikings facing Swinton Lions at the Select Security Stadium, with Featherstone Rovers facing off against Hunslet.

All ties are set to take place on the weekend of March 14/15th.

The full draw is as follows:

Wakefield Trinity vs Bradford Bulls
Widnes Vikings vs Swinton Lions
Sheffield Eagles vs Workington Town
Newcastle Thunder vs Whitehaven/Dewsbury Rams
Featherstone Rovers vs Hunslet
Toronto Wolfpack vs Huddersfield Giants
Hull Kingston Rovers vs Leigh Centurions
York City Knights vs Rochdale Hornets
