Have your say: Should the Challenge Cup semi-final double header stay?

The Challenge Cup semi-final was a double header for the first time on the weekend and we want to know if you think it should stay.

St Helens faced Catalans Dragons in the first game of the double header at the University of Bolton Stadium on Sunday.

The Dragons caused a huge upset as they defeated Super League and Challenge Cup favourites St Helens 35-16 following a spectacular first half display.

In the other semi-final, Warrington Wolves took on Leeds Rhinos in a highly anticipated clash at the home of Bolton Wanderers FC.

The Wolves comfortably dispatched the Rhinos 48-12, having scored eight tries, with Josh Charnley and Tom Lineham going over for two tries each.

The Challenge Cup final will now see Catalans go up against Warrington in a game that has all of the ingredients to be a thriller at Wembley Stadium.

There was a crowd of 26,086 at the University of Bolton Stadium in Lancashire, a sell-out crowd.

The majority of people who got in touch with us on social media loved the concept of the semi-final double header, with it having the feel of a proper event and were glad to have attended.

While others got in touch with us and suggested that it would be better off being kept at separate, neutral grounds, closer to their respective locations.
