Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Round Up

A review of the fourth round ties played this weekend


Several ties in the fourth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fell foul of the adverse weather this weekend, however we now know eight of the teams through to the fifth round draw on Tuesday.

First into the hat was Toronto Wolfpack following a 56-6 victory over NCL Premier division side Kells including a hat-trick for Liam Kay.

In Friday’s other fixture, Doncaster hosted Newcastle Thunder at the Keepmoat Stadium with the home team running out 34-0 winners.

Saturday saw the BBC Sport cameras at the LD Nutrition Stadium, Featherstone for a great game between Normanton Knights of the NCL take on Betfred Championship side Rochdale Hornets. Although the Hornets ended up going through thanks to a 20-8 score line, fans and viewers were full of praise for the Normanton display, especially two try hero, full back Connor Wilson.

Five games survived the winter chill with two of the three Cumbrian sides; Whitehaven and Barrow, winning at home to claim a place in the draw bag next week. London Broncos held off a late comeback from Workington Town to remain unbeaten in 2018.

Other results saw League 1 York City Knights beat Championship Swinton Lions 26-12 and Batley fall 8-4 to Leigh Centurions in a cold and blustery encounter.

The four ties postponed due to the weather will be re-arranged to play at a date decided by the two clubs involved.  

Featherstone Rovers and North Wales Crusaders have agreed to reverse the fixture and play at LD Nutrition Stadium this Tuesday night (20th March) at 7:30pm
