The draws have been made for the Men’s and Women’s Challenge Cup semi-finals during half-time of the quarter-final clash between Wigan and Warrington at the DW Stadium.

The winners of that tie will face Hull KR, with the semi-finals to be played as Men’s/Women’s double-headers on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 July.

The Rugby Football League confirmed that venue and ticketing information will be announced on Monday, June 19.

England Women assistant and Leeds Rhinos head coach Lois Forsell conducted the Men’s draw live on BBC One, and former England international Kevin Brown the Women’s.

In the last quarter-final game of the weekend, Adrian Lam’s Leigh Leopards take on Championship side York at the LNER Community Stadium.
