Draw takes place at 3.45pm on Tuesday March 18, broadcast live on BBC 5 Live Extra, BBC Radio Manchester, BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio Humberside.

 

Any clever links to 'see' it live as it happens on here would be great

 

Personally anyone at home would be good, a side from our division would be great

Poor, if I'm honest.

 

Agree, but see Leigh have been drawn away so assume it will be played at Leigh Sporting Village, sure our young back line will like the open spaces & that great playing surface

But winnable

Perhaps, they have played 4 lost 4 in the league so far, they could be there for the taking. Although if we don't win it's a fair bit of money we've probably lost out on as I'm guessing the attendance will be poor. 249 at their game against Gateshead on Sunday..

Just a mention at least you get money off the small gate better than a super league team when they get free entry to this round with season tickets

 

Pretty sure nobody gets free entry to their 1st Cup game anymore - that was stopped 2 seasons ago

Have Swinton got the same arrangement with Warrington as last season?If so then,good chance a fair few of those players will play.By that I mean,Swinton signed a lot of Warringtons players on loan,(as opposed to dual reg) maybe even season long loans.So they got away with playing,5,6,7 players whenever they wanted.With it being the challenge cup then things may well be different.Would be surprised if Warrington want them all cup tied.Will be an interesting one I think.

Swinton Lions will play their Challenge Cup Fourth Round tie against York City Knights here at Leigh Sports Village on Sunday April 6 at 3pm.

With the prize of a potentially money-spinning draw against one of the Super League teams on offer in the Fifth Round, this is a game that neither team will take lightly.

Swinton are celebrating after winning their first game of the season in the Kingstone Press Championship, beating Barrow Raiders 44-26 – a result which lifted them clear of the bottom of the league. York City Knights, meanwhile, have made a stunning start to life in Championship 1, winning all three of their games.

Swinton thrashed Gateshead Thunder 66-6 to get to this stage of the competition, while York City Knights squeezed past Whitehaven 34-32.

Ticketing details will be announced in due course.
