Challenge Cup sixth round: Key dates, KO times & TV coverage
Here’s everything you need to know about the Challenge Cup sixth round, including dates, kick-off times and televised coverage.
All 12 Super League clubs will enter the competition in the sixth round, as well as the four Championship teams who have reached this stage.
The four part-time Championship teams that are left in this year’s Challenge Cup are York, London Broncos, Halifax and Batley.
At least one of those Championship sides are guaranteed a place in the quarter-finals, with York having been drawn London at home.
Halifax, meanwhile, have a nice earner in hosting world champions St Helens at The Shay.
Batley face a tough trip to face in-form Super League side Hull KR at Craven Park.
The Championship quartet will make up the semi-finals of the 1895 Cup – putting them all within 80 minutes of Wembley.
