Challenge Cup draw on Monday

Post by josie andrews » Mon Mar 29, 2021 7:30 am

The draw for the Third Round of the 2021 Betfred Challenge Cup will be held on Monday morning at Victoria Park in Warrington – the recipient of a large grant from Rugby League World Cup’s CreatedBy Capital Grants Programme.

Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, will join the RLWC2021 ambassadors Jodie Cunningham and Jason Robinson at Victoria Park, where the Year 8 girls of Cardinal Newman High School will celebrate the return of grassroots sport with a pre-school training session.

The draw will be broadcast on BBC Sport and iPlayer from 9:35am – with two Third Round ties to be shown live by the BBC on Saturday 10th April.

With the structure of the 2021 Betfred Challenge Cup amended because of the impact of lockdown on community Rugby League, the Third Round is the stage at which the heavyweights of the Betfred Super League enter the competition – including Wigan Warriors.

They will be joined by four clubs from the Betfred Championship who have come through the first two rounds – Featherstone Rovers, Swinton Lions, York City Knights and Widnes Vikings.

The draw numbers for the Third Round of the Betfred Challenge Cup are:

1 Castleford Tigers

2 Catalans Dragons

3 Huddersfield Giants

4 Hull FC

5 Hull KR

6 Leeds Rhinos

7 Leigh Centurions

8 St Helens

9 Salford Red Devils

10 Wakefield Trinity

11 Warrington Wolves

12 Wigan Warriors

13 Featherstone Rovers

14 Swinton Lions

15 York City Knights

16 Widnes Vikings

Betfred Challenge Cup 2021

Third Round – April 10-11

Quarter Finals – May 8-9

Semi Finals – June 5-6

Final – Saturday July 17, Wembley Stadium connected by EE

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.

What a pity there'll be no fans, we would have done the weekend in York, it's a great city to visit.

+1

Not a bad draw overall, couple of bullets avoided (IMO) and thankfully at the minimum, 4 SL teams will be eliminated too.

We can't complain about that draw even though York are playing well so far (beaten Bradford and London). What a shame that we couldn't all turn up at their new stadium and give them a decent crowd. I'd love to see them in super league one day.

Personally I was looking forwards to a challenge cup weekend in "New York". Never going to happen now though. :roll:
