Just relieved to get through this. No excuses. We put a strong squad out even without Chase and Horne. Seems discipline was an issue from some of our more senior players. Held up over line. Chelps. Penalty. Chelps again. Sin bin. Not really acceptable.

Good game that, army have some pace and power on the wings, clever half's too. Draw should be interesting, hopefully they get a good home game.

The British Army are into the 4th round of the Challenge Cup for the first time ever. 

Featherstone Rovers have played The Army twice. What round would those games have been?

I dunno, it was just mentioned on commentary that it's their first time in the 4th round. 

Edit. Quick Internet search says fev played them in the 3rd round. 2009 and 2011 by the looks of things.

Yeah. Same stage, different round number nowadays. Cheers mate.

The draw was always fixed so that the amateur teams drew a semi pro team at round 3 stage, so made it very difficult for the amateurs to progress beyond the 3rd round stage. It is now an open draw, therefore amateur teams can  play each other at round 3, therefore being able to progress to round 4 a bit more easily.

So it isn't the same stage as before, the amateur  teams get to round 4 on merit.

I believe that's Cru's record high score. Think they'll do well in L1 this year.

No, 82-6 against West Hull in the Cup in 2013. Comfortable win today, but Mayfield by no means disgraced themselves, plugged away right to the end and might even have got another try with a bit of luck. Take it that the draw's next Tuesday, anyone got any idea of when?
