Challenge Cup semi-final draw confirmed

FOUR Challenge Cup fixtures took place over the weekend as four teams put their names into the hat for the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Up first on Saturday was Hull KR’s home tie against Leigh Leopards in a re-match of last year’s Challenge Cup Final. This time it was Rovers that came away with the spoils in a 26-14 triumph. Elsewhere on Saturday, Catalans Dragons hosted Huddersfield Giants. In one of the shocks of the year so far, Ian Watson’s men inflicted a surprise 34-6 defeat on the French side.

On Sunday, Castleford Tigers went up against Wigan Warriors at The Jungle, but Matt Peet’s men were by far the better side, running out 60-6 winners in a procession for the Lancashire side.

Now the Challenge Cup semi-final clashes have been confirmed during half-time of St Helens home cup clash against Warrington Wolves.
