RFL cancel New York Cup draw plans

Post by josie andrews » Sat Mar 14, 2020 1:02 pm

The RFL have cancelled plans to hold the Challenge Cup sixth round draw in New York.

It will now instead take place at MediaCityUK, Salford, and broadcast live on BBC Sport Online and Our League at 6.00pm.

The RFL explained: “Officials from the RFL and New York Rugby League decided in the last 24 hours not to proceed with plans to hold the draw in New York.

“Negotiations are at an advanced stage for New York Rugby League to enter the game’s oldest knock-out competition in 2021, which is why plans were made some time ago for the city to host the draw.
.
It is likely that a New York draw will be held in the future, probably in 2021.”

Round six ties are scheduled for the weekend of 4/5 April, although this is subject to change.

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.
