York City Knights have drawn Catalan Dragons away in the Tetley's Challenge Cup 5th Rd.

 

The Knights reached the last 16 after a thrilling 30-28 victory at home to Toulouse yesterday, and are now set to face the Dragons on the weekend of 11/12 May. Details will be confirmed ASAP.

 

What do you think to the draw?

 

:D

Bad draw really needed a home tie for money reasons.

In all seriousness it was shocking the way the draw was completed.
No wonder there is a lot of complaining going on about it.
TOUCH THE MAGIC OF THE YORK CITY KNIGHTS

On radio they said they were using 2 bags or was I hearing things, home and away, if so it seems a bit odd.

Its a great draw, Catalan get decent crowds at every game, cup or league, and York get half the gate!

 

I'm buzzing!

Double edged sword this one. I agree with Gav about the proceeds as Catalans get good crowds down there - as for the Knights fans etc, it'll be expensive to do the trip.

Agree Gav. They averaged over 9,300 for home games last season. Should be a good experience for players and fans alike.
It's good to win at home, but it's better to win away!

Had a look at flights - might be missing the obvious, but difficult when & wherever you may fly to & from..

Think it's more the fact it's away Gav. Can't see many away fans.
I'm buzzing!

Nice weekend away for the players and staff, hopefully a few fans, and maybe a bit of cash but not the draw we wanted

Great weekend away. I did it last year for Sheffield Eagles. Jet 2 to Barca , hire car, hard drive up to Perp, few beers around the stadium and a cheap hotel. Away promptly back to Barca for the return flight . Back in England for 4pm Sunday.
Fantastic ground and supporters - Perpignan quite a charming town.
Go for it and enjoy it.

 Yes it's a nice place to go Perpignan, drove down a few times to South of France,would be another good trip but need to spend a few days to go down there and return would be worth it if you get a small number to go by road,work out a lot cheaper than a flight.

don't think the half gate rule doesn't apply for French games
