Some info re Draw and a question

12 posts in this topic

Below is an article from the BBC web pages, is it true what is highlighted in red?

Siddal became the 22nd non-league club to topple a professional outfit since amateur clubs gained wholesale entry into the Cup in 1993-94.

They did it in record-breaking fashion, eclipsing the previous widest victory of margin achieved by Beverley with their 27-4 win at Highfield in 1995.

The only other amateur outfit to go into the hat are Wigan St Judes, whose third-round tie at Widnes Vikings was postponed and rearranged for Tuesday night.

Monday's draw, which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 5 live, will be made by Graeme West and Garry Schofield who both played in the 1985 Challenge Cup Final between Wigan and Hull, one of the greatest finals of all time.......................................................

Carnegie Challenge Cup

Leigh East 14-30 Hunslet Warriors

Surely, Hunslet Warriors are in there somewhere...........

Leigh East v Hunslet Warriors was a glaring error. Two amateur teams just can't draw each other in the third round.

The Dogs 150 : 1 - whichh planet are they on and I think Hull KR might be wortha bob at those odds

They've got Siddal in the next round, which is reflected in the odds.

The odds are to win it - not sure that an easy ride into the last 16 is sufficient to justify those odds.
