I think Challenge Cup entry is now optional for NCL teams?

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Live draw. SLTV captured it.

You couldn't have written those two. Great days for Cumbria RL.

If Egremont can't pack their clubhouse for that one it's time to pack in!

And as for early bragging rights in South Cumbria , look no further than that Askam rumble.....

Kells actually play on the welfare which is a nice field to play on. If your a team from away who are a good outfit thats when you play on haigh pit which is bloody uneven and one of the coldest places youll ever play!!!

Egremont v Kells should be a great tie just a pity that it throws the end of the CARLA season into disarray if Kells win the game
Forget Chuck and Chad I am the real legend killer

There's room for manoevre on that date as Egremont have a serious end of season schedule as well.......

Why is this competition starting so early this year and why two rounds in consecutive weeks ? It's starting 10 months away from the final.

some cracking ties there, East Leeds v Drighlington, Askam v Millom, Blackbrook v Castleford Lock Lane, Kells v Egremont Rangers, Hunslet Warriors v Wigan St Judes and Shaw Cross Sharks v Pilkington Recs being the pick for me.

good old fashioned knock out rugby league.

So that the competition can hit the ground running from these qualifying arm wrestles when the new season starts in March 2013.....

So why didn't Sharlston receive a spot?
Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

I can remember years ago turning Askam over 10 - 15 at their place in the Challenge Cup, we where a Sunday pub side and after the game only a few of their players actually talked to us.

what was the criteria for being invited this year? theres usually a breakdown listed of which teams and why, ie cup/league winners for the different areas and leagues represented.

It has an RFL logic to it.
Because they hate Jim from moorends they would not invite Sharlston...
