The Rugby Football League (RFL) announced today (Friday) the competition will resume at the sixth round stage on the weekend of August 22 and 23. The day and venue of most matches have yet to be announced, but the Cup will restart with a BBC-televised double-header at Huddersfield’s John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, August 22, when Warrington Wolves meet Wigan Warriors at 2.30 on bbc 1 and St Helens take on Salford  Red Devils.at 5 on bbc 2

It's farcical. Can't see anything but those teams playing non Super League teams getting byes. The opposition teams can't just turn up without their overseas players and without any training or preparation. The likes of Cas (they play York) are just required to win two matches to get to Wembley.

If the Super Leagues clubs are all awarded byes in the next round, how can the competition  be completed with integrity.

Whilst it is reasonable to accept that the Final would be contested by two Super League sides the competition it would not be fair on the teams from the lower leagues and the competition should be cancelled.

Lower division clubs can and do beat those in the higher leagues.

The CC can't be cancelled or postponed. The cost (i.e Wembley ) of doing so would be to great for the RFL.

All the Championship teams have pulled out and they are having a re-draw. Was inevitable in the circumstances.

  Could there be a split coming on.I do hope so, i am fed up of Super League looking down on the lower divisions instead of helping the game progress from bottom up not top down.

I said farcical earlier. 

It's worse.

I guess SL will say it is an unfortunate and inevitable effect of Covid19 but to me it really highlights the discrimination in the sport between SL and The Rest.

Respect to the Club for the well chosen dignified words and respectful comments about those directly interested in the Challenge Cup such as sponsors including our own commercial partners.

The official statement is admirable in its restraint but I bet behind it all our Chairman and all concerned are seething and rightly so.
