It is Ladbroke’s Challenge Cup weekend as the four sides from Super League who took part in the middle eights last season join the knockout party with potential banana skins aplenty for the unwary or unprepared. The Catalans Dragons, Warrington Wolves, Hull KR and Widnes Vikings are all in action, along with the twelve sides who have survived the earlier rounds.
The Cup means a reduced round twelve of Super League with just four games as last season’s Super Eights teams use up their game in hand. Nonetheless there are some interesting looking games as the Airlie Birds entertain the Rhinos, the Warriors are at home to the Tigers and Trinity travel to the Red Devils. The remaining game pits St Helens against the Giants with only one likely outcome.
