Not sure, but if it's the breakfast show, there is a very real danger of Nicky Campbellend being involved.

I've got to say that I do like the structure of the CC this season. Last year's top eight entering only in the last 16 has had two beneficial effects. First, one less game for most of the leading clubs, and second, it's given the smaller clubs a better chance of a decent run adding a bit more excitement to the comp.

That's a bit unfair. Toulouse and their fans chose to devalue the Cup by putting out a reserve side and not turning up.

The bigger question is what happened to Hull FC? I was hoping for a Hull v Rovers draw, being in the Championship is difficult to get used to!

If we can scrape through I might get my wish in the next round. I know the West Hullers are Roy Orbison.

Coverage already started. Being presented with enthusiasm despite initial cock up stating Jason Robinson lost his first games at Wembley in 1993 when he actually won,scored twice and got Lance Todd trophy.

Now spent more time with Jason covering the 6 Nations. Finished that now on to the British Lions tour. Totally dwarfed the coverage. RL need to learn it's a mistake to invite cross coders .....An open goal that encourages the BBC to pander to their Union leanings!

What's that all about, one less game for the leading clubs, maybe good for the top 8, how is that beneficial to the other clubs competing with them in the same division.

It's a fix! All 4 super league teams at home!

And Rovers and Toronto Wolfpack the two marquee teams drawn against Super League sides!

Good chance for Rovers to measure up v the newest SL side!

Three standout ties to me:

Leigh vs Hull KR

Salford vs Toronto

Dewsbury vs Batley

Does anybody know how many televised/streamed games there are at this stage of the competition?  Sounds to me like the BBC might already be favouring the Salford-Toronto game judging by comments on R5L.

Why is a top 6 club v a Championship 1 Club the tie of the round? as stated in the studio immediatly after the draw, Granted there will be massive interest but the tie of the round must be Leigh v HKR.

Everyone loves a giant-killing. Haydock got the coverage in R4.

Plead for Leigh v Rovers to be on Sunday 23rd.

Away to Toulouse the previous Monday so not back til midweek.

Could hope for 2000 plus away following on the Sunday down to 1000 for a Saturday.

What does LSV hold?
