Oldham rewarded with Warrington tie in Challenge Cup

Holders Leeds Rhinos have been handed a West Yorkshire derby in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup, as they travel to Huddersfield Giants.

The draw was made by Great Britain legend Martin Offiah and presenter John Humphrys on BBC Radio Four’s Today programme this morning, and threw up some fascinating ties.

Batley will host Super League side Catalans Dragons, whilst Oldham, the side who caused a huge upset in the last round by beating Hull KR, have been rewarded with a home tie against Warrington Wolves.

Wigan will travel to Dewsbury Rams, a trip they have made in the recent past, St Helens host Hull FC in one of several all-Super League ties – whilst League 1 side Toulouse, the lowest-ranked side left in the competition, will travel to Belle Vue to play Wakefield.
