Challenge Cup fourth round draw: Cumbrian amateurs land Toronto test

James Gordon

Cumbrian amateurs Kells will host Toronto Wolfpack in one of the stand out ties of the Challenge Cup fourth round.

All three Cumbrian sides left in the competition landed home ties – with League One sides Whitehaven and Workington hosting Championship pair Dewsbury and London respectively.

The lowest ranked team in the competition, Pilkington Recs, face a trip to face Coventry Bears, while the other remaining amateur side, Normanton Knights, host Rochdale Hornets.

Two all Championship ties see coach-less Leigh travel to Batley and Barrow host winless Sheffield.

2003 Challenge Cup winners Bradford travel to Hunslet, while fellow five-time winners Halifax have a home date with League One side Oldham.

Conducting the draw was Challenge Cup winner Rob Parker, who selected the home balls. Away teams were drawn by Warrington Wolves’ assistant coach Andrew Henderson.

All ties will be played over the weekend of March 17-18.

A fourth round game will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website, the fixture chosen will be announced in due course.
