BBC to show Challenge Cup third round tie

James Gordon

BBC Sport will live stream the Challenge Cup third round tie between League 1 side Hunslet and community club Siddal.

The game takes place on Sunday February 13 (1pm kick-off) at the South Leeds Stadium and will be shown live on BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport website and app.

Hunslet have won the Challenge Cup twice in their history, and made it through with a 22-6 win over league rivals Keighley last weekend.

Their first victory came when they won all four cups in 1907/08, led by the legendary Albert Goldthorpe.

National Conference League club Siddal have recent history of upsetting professional opposition, beating Doncaster in 2010 and Newcastle in 2016.

The Halifax-based club have already beaten Great Britain Police and Pilkington Recs in this season’s competition.

The prize for the winner will be a trip to either Swinton Lions or North Wales Crusaders in the fourth round.

Two further games from the third round are expected to be streamed live via the Our League app and The Sportsman.

There are six ties in total, with the winners going through to the fourth round joining the 14 Championship clubs.
