Ellery Hanley and Jonathan Davies to conduct Challenge Cup quarter-finals draw

Great Britain legends Ellery Hanley and Jonathan Davies will conduct the Challenge Cup quarter-finals draw on Sunday evening.

The draw will take place after the televised sixth-round tie between their former clubs, Wigan and Warrington.

The Warrington-Wigan tie at the Halliwell Jones Stadium (2:15pm kick-off) is one of two that will be shown live on BBC1 this weekend, following the return of the classic West Yorkshire derby between Bradford and Leeds at Odsal on Saturday afternoon, kicking off at 2:30pm.

There are two more all-Super League ties live on Sky Sports – the meeting of the 2016 and 2017 Wembley winners Hull FC with Castleford at the KCOM Stadium on Friday night (7:35pm kick-off), followed by the current Super League pacesetters St Helens crossing the Pennines to face Huddersfield Giants at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday evening (6:05pm).

The weekend’s four other ties include Catalans Dragons launching their defence of the Cup at home to Doncaster, the only League One team remaining in the competition, in Perpignan on Saturday afternoon.

Wakefield face Widnes at the Mobile Rocket Stadium on Friday night in a repeat of the 1979 Wembley final, Salford host Hull KR on Saturday afternoon (2pm), and at least one Championship team is guaranteed to reach the last eight with Dewsbury Rams facing Halifax also on Friday night.

Challenge Cup sixth round ties:

Friday: Hull FC v Castleford Tigers (7:35pm, live on Sky Sports); Dewsbury Rams v Halifax (8pm); Wakefield Trinity v Widnes Vikings (7:45pm).

Saturday: Bradford Bulls v Leeds Rhinos (2:30pm, live on BBC1); Salford Red Devils v Hull Kingston Rovers (2pm); Catalans Dragons v Doncaster (3pm).

Sunday: Warrington Wolves v Wigan Warriors (2:15pm, live on BBC1); Huddersfield Giants v St Helens (6:05pm, live on Sky Sports).

The quarter-finals draw will be shown live on the BBC after the Warrington-Wigan tie.
