The first round of the Cup was played at the weekend, with the second round ties being played between March 27-28. All four ties will be streamed live and free.

The BBC will show Swinton v Oldham (12:30pm) on Sunday, followed by London Broncos v York (2:30pm). The matches will again be broadcast live on BBC iPlayer, Red Button and BBC Sport digital platforms.

The other two ties – Featherstone v Batley (Saturday, 12:45pm) and Widnes v Whitehaven (Sunday, 5pm) – will be streamed on The Sportsman’s website, YouTube and Facebook.
