Thirty eight Rugby League teams will belatedly step out on the road that leads to Wembley this weekend when 19 weather-delayed Carnegie Challenge Cup preliminary round ties are scheduled to be played.
Only Leeds Metropolitan University were able to beat the big freeze last week, when they defeated Ovenden 15-14, and 19 grassroots teams are hoping to join them in the first round proper over the weekend of February 18 and 19
