The draw for Round Five will be streamed on BBC Sport and Our League at 6.30pm on Monday 24 February, 6.30pm, live from Hull Kingston Rovers’ Hull College Craven Park. Rovers are one four Super League clubs joining the competition at this stage, alongside Huddersfield Giants, Toronto Wolfpack and Wakefield Trinity.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Rovers’ famous 1980 Challenge Cup Final victory over their neighbours and fierce rivals Hull FC – a hard-fought 10-5 win in front of a capacity crowd at Wembley Stadium. And taking part in the draw will be one of the members of that cup-winning side, the former Great Britain hooker and pack enforcer David Watkinson.

Toronto Wolfpack have entered the Coral Challenge Cup for the first time since 2017 and exiled Torontonian and Rugby League ‘superfan’ Sandy Shipley will be joining David Watkinson to draw the teams.

Fifth Round ties will be played on the weekend of 14/15 March. As in the previous rounds, one tie will be selected for live streaming by BBC Sport and another by the RFL for Our League.

The remaining eight Super League clubs enter the competition at the Sixth Round stage.

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
