The draws for the 1895 Cup play-off and semi-finals have been made, with five teams bidding to reach the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

The draw took place on Monday morning live on BBC Radio Cumbria.

The play-off draw will be played on the weekend of April 7-8, with Sheffield Eagles hosting fellow Championship club Whitehaven. The tie will likely be at Featherstone again due to the delay of the Olympic Legacy Park.

The weekend of May 7-8 will see the semi-finals played. Leigh Centurions will take on the winner of Sheffield-Whitehaven at the Leigh Sports Village. Barrow Raiders will welcome Championship league leaders Featherstone Rovers to Cumbria.

The 1895 Cup final will be a curtain-raiser to the Challenge Cup final at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday, May 28.
