Challenge Cup fifth round draw throws up several intriguing ties

League 1 sides Bradford and Hunslet have been handed a mouthwatering prize should they win their fourth round Challenge Cup tie.. a trip to Super League heavyweights Warrington.

In one of several enthralling ties for the fifth round – which sees four Super League sides enter the competition at this point – the Bulls could face the Wolves for the first time since their relegation from the top flight several years ago.

Hull Kingston Rovers will travel to Oldham, sparking memories of two years ago, when the Roughyeds knocked Rovers out of the cup away from home. Widnes will host Coventry Bears or Pilkington Recs – while Catalans Dragons face a potential banana-skin tie with a trip to League 1 side York City Knights.

Elsewhere, Toronto will face Barrow, there is an all-Championship thriller between Leigh and London, Doncaster will host Featherstone in a battle of two ambitious clubs, while Whitehaven host Rochdale Hornets.
