For Summer Conference sides and northern regional sides. When's that taking place?

I see the inaugural NCL Challenge Cup reachs its quarter final stage this coming weekend. Looks like some decent ties in prospect with teams from Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire involved.

There's no summer conference.

But it's underway already they've had first round. Think last 16 is soon.

Wasn't there a RLC Challenge cup for a couple of years?

Community Challenge Shield: Last 16 draw
Saturday 28 July

Kells v Jarrow Vikings
West Hull Lions v Leigh East
Walton Warriors v Bank Quay Bull
Skirlaugh v Ince Rose Bridge
Fryston Warriors v Leicester Storm
Bamber Bridge v Distington

Hammersmith Hills Hoists and Elmbridge Eagles already through, their last game was back in May.
Quarter finals are in September.

Not sure what the point of this comp is, other than to launch a rival to the BARLA Cup.

It's a good idea but I'd like to eventually see it entirely replace the Harry Jepson Trophy as that no longer has the same purpose, unless you want it to double up as Challenge Cup qualifying.

Challenge cup is by invite for amateur clubs
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Yes but invite based on winning various competitions eg the HJ Trophy winner has been invited for about 10 years.

thats not quite true though is it?

if it were you would be able to tell me what the 3 armed forces teams, the british police, 6 student teams (loughborough, edgehill, northumbria, leeds met, uni of gloucester, hull), 4 RLC teams, and the entire NCL (barring the premier division winners) have won? nothing, they were invited. you could technically add to that list 1 cumberland arl nomination, 1 north west league representative and 1 welsh representative!

Some clubs are invited by status and some by what league/cup they won. Personally I think they should have more clubs from say the Pennine League like they used to.

We won and the team we beat got the invite :wacko:

Yes because both finalists folded. It's not an exact science but a lot of titles comes with a Challenge Cup invite

Somerset were meant to play Elmbridge and Hammersmith Eastern Rhinos. Any idea if these were cancelled?

We've just had half a dozen players return from Kavos and they said a load of Fryston lads stayed in the same hotel, apparently there is also a bunch of their players in Blackpool this weekend.

Alot of Distington players are miffed apparently they agreed with the RFL to play this saturday which never got passed onto Bamber Bridge who expected Distington last saturday and the RFL have now awarded the tie to Bamber Bridge even though it seems that the club are blameless and the fault lies with the RFL!! This should have been a good competition if the likes of Bank Quay, Pilkington Recs were in there with the likes of Kells, Distington and Fryston

Bank Quay had 2 sides in but Pilkington Recs switched too late to summer. Hope they run it better next year.

Quarter finals
Leigh East A Vs Walton Warriors
Skirlaugh Bulls Vs Fryston Warriors
Bamber Bridge Vs Kells
Elmbridge Eagles Vs Hammersmith Hillshoists

Did Coventry & other NCL 3 sides not participate in the KO Cups this year?
