Challenge Cup draw

Post by josie andrews » Mon Apr 15, 2019 8:28 pm

Wigan Warriors will face Warrington Wolves away in Round six of the 2019 Coral Challenge Cup.

The record 19-time winners of the competition will travel to the Halliwell Jones Stadium to face the 8-time winners Warrington on the weekend 10th-12th May. The exact date and time is yet to be confirmed.


The two Clubs last met in the competition in the quarter final of the 2018 Challenge Cup. The Wire came out on top that day, winning 23-0 on home soil.

Information on how to buy tickets for the fixture will be available in the coming days.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Dodgy like, It's like we are being punished for something and the RFL's golden boys are getting rewarded

I can’t see this being a sellout

I don’t wish to be gloomy, but our season could be over by 11th May. With Friday being a likely rout (and we need to keep our eye on points difference even when we are losing heavily, as that is the only thing keeping us above London), and the available squad unlikely to be strong enough to win any of the next 2 games, even if we hit form and beat London at home, the top 5 will be too far off. Wire could beat us at their place, even with a strong side. Not looking good.

But at least we have a special edition top!

On the bright side though it leaves us free to concentrate on avoiding relegation.

We can concentrate on that. We could even go into full on Great Escape mode!

That means a swelling of crowds. Maybe this is what Ian wants
