BBC and Our League confirm Round Four coverage

The BBC Sport cameras will be in attendance for Bradford Bulls vs Underbank Rangers

Bradford Bulls versus Underbank - the David and Goliath tie of the Coral Challenge Cup’s Fourth Round - will be streamed live on BBC Sport and Red Button on Sunday, February 23, 1pm kick off.

West Yorkshire community club Underbank, formed in 1884, reached the Fourth Round stage for the very first time after defeating League 1 side West Wales Raiders 30-8 in Llanelli.

Championship side Bradford knocked Super League rivals Leeds Rhinos out of last year's competition in a memorable, televised quarter final at Odsal.

The Our League cameras will be in London on the same day, where the Broncos entertain York City Knights in a mouth-watering all-Championship clash (KO 3pm). Both sides are expected to be among the front-runners in this year's title race.

The full draw is as follows.

  • Bradford Bulls v Underbank Rangers;
  • Featherstone Rovers v Barrow Raiders or London Skolars
  • Leigh Centurions v Batley Bulldogs
  • London Broncos v York City Knights
  • North Wales Crusaders v Hunslet
  • Rochdale Hornets or York Acorn v British Army
  • Sheffield Eagles v Halifax
  • Siddal v Keighley Cougars or Newcastle Thunder
  • Swinton Lions v Leigh Miners Rangers
  • Whitehaven v Dewsbury Rams
  • Widnes Vikings v Oldham
  • Workington Town or West Bowling v Doncaster

Ties will be played on week-ending Sunday, February 23. 

Revised dates for the four outstanding Coral Challenge Cup Round Three ties can also now be confirmed, following their postponement last Sunday due to Storm Ciara.

Keighley Cougars will entertain League 1 counterparts Newcastle Thunder on Saturday 15 February - a tie that will be streamed live on Our League from 2pm. The winners will play National Conference side Siddal in round four.

The other three fixtures will take place on Sunday 16 February, including Rochdale Hornets home game with York Acorn which has been switched to Salford's AJ Bell Stadium as the Crown Oil Arena pitch remains unplayable.

The game will kick off at 3pm and the winners will entertain the British Army. Kick off at Derwent Park, where League 1 Workington Town entertain Bradford-based West Bowling, is 2pm, while Barrow Raiders take on London Skolars in another all-League 1 clash at 3pm.
