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.

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.
