New York to host Challenge Cup sixth round draw

New York will host the Challenge Cup sixth round draw on Monday evening (UK time).

Negotiations are at an advanced stage for New York Rugby League to enter the game’s oldest knockout competition at the First Round stage in early 2021.

The Sixth Round marks the entry of eight Super League heavyweights into the Cup, including the 2019 winners Warrington – each needing only three wins to secure their place in the final at Wembley.

The Fifth Round of the Coral Challenge Cup begins on Wednesday night when Toronto Wolfpack face the in-form Huddersfield Giants in an all-Super League clash at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Another seven round five ties will be played over the weekend, with BBC Sport heading to the North East on Sunday to cover Newcastle’s home tie against the winners of Wednesday night’s fourth round clash between Whitehaven and Dewsbury, which was postponed during last month’s storms.
