Coral Challenge Cup Second Round Draw

The 2019 National Conference League champions West Hull have been handed a tough trip to Wigan St Patricks in a meeting of two of amateur Rugby League’s most renowned and successful clubs in the Second Round of the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup.

West Hull’s local rivals Skirlaugh have been rewarded for their unexpected win against Hunslet Club Parkside in the First Round tie streamed live by the BBC with an away tie against the British Army, the only one of the three Forces teams to make the Second Round.

Sherwood Wolf Hunt, who won a thriller against London’s Wests Warriors in the First Round, have another home tie, with Bradford’s West Bowling making the trip to North Nottinghamshire.

Great Britain Police, having thrashed the Welsh club Torfaen Tigers 66-0 in the First Round, will expect stiffer opposition from Rochdale Mayfield – although they again have home advantage.

There is a West Yorkshire derby between Thornhill Trojans and Normanton Knights, while the two Cumbrian First Round winners must both travel – Distington to Holmfirth to face Underbank Rangers, and Barrow Island to York Acorn.

Ties will be played on the weekend of January 25-26, with two selected for live streaming – one by the BBC, and one by the RFL’s Our League app.

The 11 winners will join the 11 teams from Betfred League 1 in the Third Round draw on January 27, with the 14 Betfred Championship clubs joining at the Fourth Round stage in February, four Betfred Super League clubs entering the Fifth Round draw, and the remaining eight – including Warrington Wolves, the Coral Challenge Cup holders – joining the competition at the Sixth Round stage in April.

The BBC will televise two ties from the Sixth Round and the Quarter Finals, and then both Semi Finals, which will be played with the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup Final in a triple header at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday June 6 – www.rugby-league.com/challengecup/article/56173/contract-extension-and–triple-header-confirmed-for-coral-challenge-cups

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
