Wolves handed Challenge Cup bye to Saints quarter-final


WARRINGTON Wolves have been handed a bye to the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup, where they will face St Helens.

The sixth round draw was ripped up earlier this week following the withdrawal of Toronto Wolfpack and five lower league clubs, which left just 10 teams left in the competition.

That meant Warrington’s original tie against Wigan was off, and a redraw was made on Wednesday evening by former Wolves and Saints player Paul Sculthorpe and the BBC’s Dave Woods.

Warrington and Saints were two of six clubs to get a bye to the last eight, where Leeds will face Hull KR.

The unlucky four who will play in the sixth round are Castleford and Hull – for the right to play Wigan – and Catalans and Wakefield – with the winner playing Salford – who will go head to head at the John Smith’s Stadium live on BBC on August 22.

The Wolves are the current holders of the trophy, having beat Saints at Wembley last August.

The quarter-final ties are due to be played on the weekend 19/20 September.
