Below is an article from the BBC web pages, is it true what is highlighted in red?

Siddal became the 22nd non-league club to topple a professional outfit since amateur clubs gained wholesale entry into the Cup in 1993-94.

They did it in record-breaking fashion, eclipsing the previous widest victory of margin achieved by Beverley with their 27-4 win at Highfield in 1995.

The only other amateur outfit to go into the hat are Wigan St Judes, whose third-round tie at Widnes Vikings was postponed and rearranged for Tuesday night.

Monday's draw, which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 5 live, will be made by Graeme West and Garry Schofield who both played in the 1985 Challenge Cup Final between Wigan and Hull, one of the greatest finals of all time.......................................................

Carnegie Challenge Cup

Leigh East 14-30 Hunslet Warriors

Surely, Hunslet Warriors are in there somewhere...........

Leigh East v Hunslet Warriors was a glaring error. Two amateur teams just can't draw each other in the third round.

They've got Siddal in the next round, which is reflected in the odds.
Power beyond comprehension...

The odds are to win it - not sure that an easy ride into the last 16 is sufficient to justify those odds.
