Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Fourth Round Draw

Challenge Cup winner Rob Parker will be joined by Warrington Wolves’ assistant coach Andrew Henderson to conduct the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fourth round draw live on the BBC Sport website on Tuesday, February 27 (from 7.00pm). 

Parker, who lifted the famous trophy in 2003 with Bradford Bulls and won a World Club Challenge in 2004, also played for Warrington Wolves, Salford Red Devils and Leigh Centurions during his career. He made his acting debut in BBC One’s Taboo programme last year alongside Tom Hardy and stars in the film Walk Like a Panther, which will be released on March 9.

Helping to conduct the draw will be Henderson, who joined Warrington as assistant coach after three seasons as Head Coach of Betfred Championship side London Broncos. He also played for Barrow Raiders, Newcastle Thunder, Salford Red Devils, Widnes Vikings and Castleford Tigers.

Eleven Betfred Championship teams will enter the draw for the fourth round alongside the 13 winnings sides from the second round of the competition, which take place over the weekend of February 24-25.
