Some great ties drawn out but it made me so angry listening to that stupid git.

Have to agree, just tried to concentrate on who was playing who because they made it so confusing and made such a mess of the draw that it was embarrassing!

Anyway, to the rugby!

Huddersfield v Leeds the tie of the round (unfortunately!) and id assume that Rovers will put up a better showing against Wigan in the Cup than they did in the League!

Hull v Wakey a close game too, and one of Sheffield or Fax to make the quarter finals!

I thought the draw was fine (other than the Hull KR mixup). I imagine if it was too slick we'd have people complaining that it was obviously fixed.

Possibly an upset at Workington too. Unlikely, but possible (no disrespect to Widnes)

Given we've drawn Leeds I'm glad it's at home
Tough, tough tie and utterly unable to call it

This is what cup rugby is about!

Now we just need to get a decent crowd in there to enjoy it.

We tend to take a decent following to Huddersfield so there will be plenty of away fans, and it will be nice to get a couple of games in there against the Giants before our annual Semi final there at the end of July  :D

Listened to it on radio Leeds  - It came over as very amatuerish to say the least.


Lets not forget, Featherstone Rovers is a RUGBY club.
