The draw for the Coral Challenge Cup round five will take place at Hull KR’s Hull College Craven Park on Monday 24 February, 6:30pm.

The draw will be streamed live on BBC Sport and Our League, with four Super League clubs joining the competition at this stage.

Hosts Hull KR will enter the draw, alongside Huddersfield Giants, Toronto Wolfpack and Wakefield Trinity.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Rovers’ famous 1980 Challenge Cup Final victory over rivals Hull FC – a hard-fought 10-5 win in front of a capacity crowd at Wembley Stadium. And taking part in the draw will be one of the members of that cup-winning side, the former Great Britain hooker David Watkinson, joined by Toronto ‘superfan’ Sandy Shipley.

Fifth round ties will be played on the weekend of 14/15 March.

The remaining eight Super League clubs enter the competition at the sixth round stage.
