I think that is this years first round draw.

As the invites to enter were only recieced by the clubs this week I doubt the information in league express is accurate

Were they? I've seen some clubs mention they were in the CC maybe a month ago - Northampton Demons as one example.

Think I shall be heading over Stainmore to watch Distington take on Queens.

Shame the Celtic trio - Longhorns RL, Strathmore Silverbacks and Valley Cougars - were drawn away.

Thoughts on upsets, who's likely to slip up against a lower ranked team?

I'll go for Featherstone Lions beating Skirlaugh and (if the pitch is a bog) Saddleworth Rangers putting out Thatto Heath. Can't see many possible upsets in that draw.

5 clubs knocked it back.Egremont,St Pats,St Judes,Dockers,Rose Bridge.Obviously think it's not worth it.Can't help agreeing with them....It's not what it was

In what sense is it not worth it? I know there's been a couple of incidents when getting to the rounds where pro sides come in that amateur sides haven't benefited much from the tie but still don't understand why that would make you reject RL's most prestigious tournament - especially in the early rounds, it's a decent preseason game and for the home sides at least a bit of money for the club.

Seen Wallsend Eagles play a few times this year in the North East league. Play some great attacking rugby. I think they could definitely cause Pilkington an upset. I'm sure Pilkington will already have one eye on the night out in Newcastle after the game.....
