  3. Paul Cooke gives his take on Rovers' win over his Leigh side in the Challenge Cup.Hull KR booked their place in the next round of the Challenge Cup with a fantastic victory over my club Leigh Centurions.

  7. When Hull KR are drawn out of the proverbial hat in the Challenge Cup draw if they're given a home tie, no team will want to be paired with them, says Craig Murdock.I don't care if you're Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Castleford Tigers or Hull FC, in fact especially if you're Hull FC, nobody will want to go to Craven Park to face the Robins.For FC it would be the worst possible draw because we've seen what can happen in a derby.
