Conducting the draw was Challenge Cup winner Nathan McAvoy, who selected the home balls, alongside Lance Todd Trophy winner Robbie Hunter-Paul, who selected the away balls.

All ties will be played between May 31 and June 3.
All four Quarter-final fixtures will be broadcast live, two games will be shown live on BBC One and BBC Two and two will be chosen by Sky Sports. These fixtures will be announced in due course.
