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

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!
