What if it ends in a draw after golden point? Granted, it’s unlikely but it would be so very Rugby League that everyone would end up stood around looking confused after they draw 18-18 after golden point. 

Plan on until someone wins, obviously.

Good point, HW - Sod's Law has a happy knack of appearing at times like this!

In this season especially, there must be a means of deciding a cup tie on the first occasion.  If it the toss of a coin, then so be it.  If it is play on for as long as it takes until somebody scores (a la NHL, post-season play-off matches), then you could record two different results for the same game, with that for SL being a draw.

That’s certainly not in the rules of Super League and unlikely to be in the rules of the Challenge Cup. 

The SL game would be drawn, and then they’d play on to see who went through to the next round of the cup.

What a farcical way to win the cup it's bad enough having to do it as it is without having one game count for two. 

Given that these teams have to play one round more than the majority of clubs left in the competition it’s actually more fair to them to allow this.
