Does anybody think the challenge cup is not prioritised by "big clubs"?? 

Yes, none of the lazy buggers even appear to be taking part in this year's first round.

It p*ssed me off at Wembley this year where the entire unsold top tier was covered over with banners representing the Super League clubs. If the RFL are going to pull that stunt, they should have a banner reprersenting every team that was in the competition from the first round onward, not just the big clubs who swan in at the last 32 stage.

North Herts Crusaders at home to the 'crabs'* (RAF) is going to be a good tie, I can cycle down as it's only 5 miles or so to the ground and hopefully NHC can give the service newbies a sound thrashing,

*pertaining to colour of ointment given to forces personnel BITD for crabs, or, sidling off sideways with a shrug of the shoulders AKA work shy slackers.

Are All Golds (who are playing my local side Drighlington) a remnant of the Gloucester All Golds?

Pretty much yes. Be interested to see how far they get.

Yes, essentially the same club just playing at a lower level.

The ointment in question being Blue Unction.

In recent years London Chargers have used Skolars ground for Challenge Cup ties

That was as part of a double/triple header around when Skolars play Broncos in a pre-season friendly. That pre-season friendly is a Friday night this year, so I can’t really see the Chargers using it for their game.

Some old Navy lags used to call the RAF crabfat as the machine grease was the same colour, I bought some black grease but I think the blue marine grease is a bit OTT for my pushbikes winter protection. hahaha

I've certainly watched them at Motspur Park in the Challenge Cup, perhaps last year (2017). My advice: keep an eye on social media before making firm travel plans.

It was 2016 at old blues.

Chargers 6th year in a row in the cup and have had 5 1st round home games.
