Wakefield & Leigh legends to conduct Challenge Cup draw

Wakefield Trinity legend Neil Fox MBE and former Leigh star Tony Barrow will conduct the draw for the quarter-finals of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup live on BBC 2 at Belle Vue, Wakefield on Sunday May 17.

Rugby League Hall of Fame member Fox, who still holds the sport’s record for most career points with 6,220, won the Challenge Cup with Wakefield three times and picked up the Lance Todd Trophy in 1962 for his heroics in the victory against Huddersfield.

Barrow played stand-off in the 1971 Leigh team that pulled-off off one of the greatest ever Cup shocks by beating Leeds 24-7 at Wembley Stadium in front of over 85,000 supporters.
