Thought we had a chance of TWP but alas it wasn't to be.

I hope they don't drag us there on a Friday night again

Seems bizarre that 8 teams come in round 6 for the last 16

Agreed. What's really the point of many lower clubs entering ?

At least when everybody came in a round 1 then some of the big clubs might be drawn against each other and therefore some would be knocked out to allow some lower clubs to progress further.

With the top 8 now coming into a round of 16 there's never going to be any chance of that .... and yet again it will two from the same small group that will get to the final.

Aye and clubs at our level and even amateurs could get really memorable , and potentially money spinning games . The chances are much lessened now

Pretty uninspiring ties there. Best probably Hull KR v Leigh but that seems to have been played quite a bit over the last few years. 

Like last year , same round , same draw

That's one of the problems with the Challenge Cup, the big boys only have to win two games and they are in the Semi Final, absolutely ridiculous. All the teams, SL, Championship and L1 should all be in at the same round, no seeding and if the SL Clubs draw against each other, tough.

That is what a cup competition is

I couldn't care less if TWP were to defeat the Giants in the CC. The only games that matter in the long term are SL games.

In football that works but in RL? If WWR drew St Helens for example it could be the biggest farce in sporting history.
