Coral Challenge Cup Fifth Round Draw

Thatto Heath Crusaders will have another giantkilling opportunity at their St Helens base in the fifth round of the Coral Challenge Cup after being drawn at home to Dewsbury Rams of the Championship.

The Crusaders are the only amateur club to have reached the last 24 of the competition after shocking North Wales Crusaders in the fourth round at the weekend.

The draw was conducted at Boxpark in Wembley by Challenge Cup legend Martin Offiah and Linzi Prescott, whose son Taylor will deliver the match-ball for this year’s Coral Challenge Cup final on August 24 after a gruelling overland journey from Perpignan – just as his father Steve did before the 2009 final 10 years ago.

Three of the four Super League clubs who join the competition at the fifth-round stage received home ties against lower division opposition – Salford against Rochdale Hornets, Hull Kingston Rovers against Leigh, and Leeds Rhinos against Workington Town.

The fourth, London Broncos, will have to travel north to face Halifax, while there are two attractive all-Championship ties – a West Yorkshire derby between Bradford Bulls and Featherstone Rovers, and revitalised Widnes Vikings at home to York City Knights.

Doncaster, who are one of two League One teams remaining in the competition with Workington, will have home advantage against Batley Bulldogs.

The ties will be played on the weekend of April 12-14, with one to be selected for streaming by the BBC, and another by the RFL’s Our League app.

The eight winners will then be joined by the top eight from last season’s Super League, including the 2018 Challenge Cup winners Catalans Dragons, in the sixth round draw on Monday April 15.

Coral Challenge Cup, Fifth Round draw: Hull KR v Leigh Centurions, Widnes Vikings v York City Knights, Thatto Heath Crusaders v Dewsbury Rams, Leeds Rhinos v Workington Town, Halifax v London Broncos, Bradford Bulls v Featherstone Rovers, Salford Red Devils v Rochdale Hornets, Doncaster v Batley Bulldogs.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
