Batley and Fev clash picked for TV

The Challenge Cup fifth round tie between Batley and Featherstone will be broadcast to a national audience, with Sky Sports selecting the game for its coverage.

It will be the first time a Championship cup tie has been broadcast by Sky Sports, which will take place on Saturday, April 16th.

Batley have had a magnificent start to the season, losing just one of their opening seven games this season and currently occupy second place in the Championship.

The only teams they have come unstuck against this year is Featherstone, who themselves have only been defeated on one occasion this year, losing to Bradford in the opening round of the Championship season.
