Super League leaders Bradford Bulls will face second-placed Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in the fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup, while holders St Helens will take on Rochdale Hornets.

The Bulls overcame a stiff challenge from Castleford Tigers in the last round of the competition, and will now have to play at their best to defeat a resurgent Wildcats side at Belle Vue.

Rochdale Hornets faced a touch test from Celtic Crusaders in round four, and, although an upset against Saints is unlikely, the side will be looking to send out a message to their Co-Operative National League One rivals.

Leeds Rhinos will welcome Wigan Warriors in another high-profile tie, while last year’s beaten finalists Huddersfield Giants will travel to Salford City Reds in a game likely to see a close result.

Carnegie Challenge Cup fifth round draw:

Whitehaven v Catalan Dragons
Warrington v Barrow
Leeds v Wigan
Hull FC v Sheffield
Salford v Huddersfield
St Helens v Rochdale
Oldham v Harlequins
Wakefield v Bradford
