England and Warrington Wolves player Stefan Ratchford will be alongside Scotland and Huddersfield Giants’ Ryan Brierley on Tuesday, February 14 (from 7.00pm) for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup third round draw.
Following Saturday’s second round games, eight winning sides will be joined by all 16 Kingstone Press League 1 clubs in the third round draw - fixtures scheduled for February 25-26.
Toronto Wolfpack will become the first transatlantic team to enter the competition and will play their first-ever Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fixture under Head Coach Paul Rowley. Brierley experienced a memorable Cup run at Leigh Centurions in 2015 under the leadership of Rowley, as the then Kingstone Press Championship side defeated Salford Red Devils and Wakefield Trinity to reach the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Ratchford enjoyed Challenge Cup glory in his first season with Warrington Wolves in 2012 and played in last year’s final defeat against Hull FC at Wembley.
