Our League confirm round one Challenge Cup coverage

·2-min read

The first round of the Challenge Cup will feature on Our League this January.

Our League will kick off another busy year of live streaming with next Sunday’s Challenge Cup round one tie between Bentley and Stanningley.

It will be the second of the weekend’s 14 first round ties to be streamed. BBC have confirmed coverage of Orrell St James versus the British Army on Saturday.

Bentley will be hoping for a repeat of the result when they last featured on Our League, in the first round of the 2020 Challenge Cup – when they earned an 18-10 win against the RAF in an enjoyable occasion at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.

They also beat West Bank Bears in the second round before their Cup run was ended by Leigh Miners Rangers.

Bentley will feature in National Conference League in 2022 for first time

Next Sunday’s game will kick off at 2:00pm. It will be played at Wheatley Hills RUFC, which will be Bentley’s base throughout 2022 – when they will be playing in the National Conference League for the first time in their history.

The ambitious club on the outskirts of Doncaster have strong links to the town’s professional club as it prepares to host three men’s fixtures in this autumn’s Rugby League World Cup at the recently renamed Eco-Power Stadium.

The details of coverage of a third tie will be confirmed this week.
