Neil Fox & Tony Barrow to conduct Challenge Cup draw


The RFL have confirmed that the draw for the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup will be made by two legends of the game.

Former Wakefield star Neil Fox MBE and ex-Leigh man Tony Barrow will be conducting the draw, which will be broadcast live on BBC2 at Belle Vue, Wakefield, on Sunday May 17.

Rugby League Hall of Fame member Fox holds the sport’s record for most career points with 6,220. He also won the Challenge Cup with Wakefield three times, picking up the Lance Todd Trophy in 1962 for his part in the victory against Huddersfield.

Barrow played stand-off in the 1971 Leigh team that pulled-off off one of the greatest ever Cup shocks by beating Leeds 24-7 at Wembley Stadium in front of over 85,000 supporters.

The draw will take place following the end of the sixth round tie between Wakefield and Leigh.
