Ladbrokes Challenge Cup quarter-final draw

The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Quarter-final draw took place this evening live on BBC Two at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (Sunday, May 13).

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.

The only remaining Betfred Championship side, Leigh Centurions, were drawn away against last year’s Betfred Super League champions Leeds Rhinos.

Current Ladbrokes Challenge Cup holders Hull FC will face Super League table toppers St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium, while Huddersfield Giants welcome French side Catalans Dragons.
Warrington Wolves, who secured a 66-10 victory against Toronto Wolfpack in Round 6, were drawn against Wigan Warriors.

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.

2018 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Quarter-final draw in full is as follows:

  • St Helens v Hull FC
  • Leeds Rhinos v Leigh Centurions
  • Huddersfield Giants v Catalans Dragons
  • Warrington Wolves v Wigan Warriors

Both former players are taking part in this year’s UK Red Ride to Wembley, which will see 26 participants cycle over 300 off-road miles from Old Trafford to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final in August, raising funds for Rugby League Cares.

Club Cash

AS you all know from your own experiences these are tough times for everybody, but we believe you will agree that OLDHAM RLFC is taking massive inspiration from the fabulous NHS and other key workers in tackling Covid head-on, while looking forward positively to the 2021 season and better times ahead thanks to the outstanding work now being done to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible.

Nevertheless, we have to face facts and be realistic enough to accept that the club urgently needs every pound that is currently coming in from whatever source. One of those sources is our Club Cash lottery and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who support us on this. A lot of you who used to pay our collectors on the doorstep have responded to our suggestions on how to pay by different methods and we are extremely grateful for that. Thanks again. You will never know how much difference your contributions make.

Alas, our income from the lottery has dropped by more than 50 per cent over the course of the pandemic and that would be a huge blow financially at any time let alone a time of unprecedented hardship because of the pandemic. It really is a situation we seriously need to address.

With that in mind the prize fund for the duration of the latest national lockdown will be temporarily reduced from February 10.

You will still be able to win a £1,000 first prize, plus £100, £50, £25 and ten £10 prizes every week, while continuing to provide vital support for the club and it will only cost you £1 a week. You can’t get a decent coffee for that, but the difference it makes to the club when multiplied a few times over and then multiplied again by 52 – the number of weeks in the financial year – is of major significance.

If you can help us at all — for £1 a week — it would be hugely appreciated by everyone with Oldham RL Club at heart. The prize structure still represents good value for money for an outlay of £1.

To those who are already members and help us accordingly, we very much hope to retain your support at this extremely difficult time.

Should you wish to play but don’t, due to the pausing of cash collection rounds, we have other options available, which you can discuss with our lottery administrator, John McAndrew on 07980129541 or from the club on 07904 898177.

Alternatively, you can send an email to: mcandrewj@aol.com or to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The prize fund will be increased back to previous levels as soon as latest lockdowns are released. Please watch our website and social media platforms for further announcements.

Finally, if you want more information about the lottery or you wish to discuss your membership please contact one of the numbers given above.

A huge thank-you to you all.
