Wolfpack to face Giants in Coral Challenge Cup

Toronto Wolfpack will face a tough trip to one of the early-season Super League pacesetters Huddersfield Giants when they return to the Coral Challenge Cup next month.

The Canadian club did not feature in last season’s competition, but have returned in 2020 following their promotion to the Betfred Super League – on the basis they will play all their ties away from home.

Huddersfield are the only team with a 100% winning record even at this early stage of the Super League season after claiming away victories against Catalans Dragons, Salford Red Devils and Hull KR.

The other two Super League clubs to enter the competition at this stage have both received home draws against Betfred Championship opposition with an impressive Challenge Cup pedigree – Wakefield Trinity will host their old West Yorkshire rivals Bradford Bulls, while Hull KR have home advantage against Leigh Centurions, who have already signalled their intention to launch a strong promotion challenge with four wins in as many matches in league and Cup so far.

Of the four Betfred League 1 teams remaining in the competition, Newcastle Thunder will host the winners of the Whitehaven-Dewsbury Fourth Round tie which was postponed on Sunday.

Workington Town will travel to Sheffield Eagles, the famous 1998 Challenge Cup winners who returned to Wembley last summer to claim the inaugural AB Sundecks 1895 Cup; Hunslet have a shorter trip to Featherstone Rovers; and Rochdale Hornets’ reward for their weekend win against the British Army is an away tie against York City Knights, who claimed an impressive Fourth Round win against London Broncos in the capital.

Widnes Vikings will host Swinton Lions in the only all-Championship tie of the round.

The ties will be played on the weekend of March 12-15, one of them to be streamed live by BBC Sport, and another by the RFL’s Our League app.

The eight winners will join the top eight from last season’s Super League – including Warrington Wolves, the holders – in the Sixth Round in early April, with the quarter finals following in May, the semi finals again being played as a triple header also featuring the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup Final (on June 6), and this year’s Wembley Final on a new date of Saturday July 18.

Coral Challenge Cup Fifth Round:

Wakefield Trinity v Bradford Bulls
Widnes Vikings v Swinton Lions
Sheffield Eagles v Workington Town
Newcastle Thunder v Whitehaven or Dewsbury
Featherstone Rovers v Hunslet
Toronto Wolfpack v Huddersfield Giants
Hull KR v Leigh Centurions
York City Knights v Rochdale Hornets

Fifth Round ties will be played on the weekend of 12/15 March. As in the previous two rounds, one tie will be selected for live streaming by BBC Sport, and another by the RFL’s Our League app.

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.
