Lock Lane – currently embroiled in a relegation battle in Division One, lying just one place and two points above the relegation zone – will look upon the cup tie as a welcome change of pace from their struggle to beat the drop.
The game will take place at Castleford Tigers’ Jungle Stadium on Sunday March 11, with the Tigers – one of the favourites to make a return to the engage Super League – overwhelming favourites to progress to the next round.
Tigers boss Terry Matterson commented on the draw: "Derbies don't come any more local than this, and I'm sure that Lock Lane will be delighted to tackle us. It will give them a real financial boost. I'm sure that they will be up for a big performance."
Thornhill Trojans – who beat Workington Town last year – were drawn against Keighley Cougars, with head coach Paul March saying: "I'm happy with the draw. We went there a few years ago and put up a good display."
