Carnegie Challenge Cup Quarter-Final previews

The Carnegie Challenge Cup Quarter-Finals are on their way this weekend.

All four ties are set to provide a feast of mouthwatering action with the eight teams just another two wins away from an appearance at the new Wembley Stadium.

On Friday night, Wigan Warriors face Quins RL at the JJB Stadium.

This is followed by a Saturday lunchtime showdown between St Helens and Warrington Wolves at Knowsley Road.

Armchair supporters can view this match live on BBC television.

The remaining two games go ahead on Sunday afternoon with Bradford Bulls facing West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Giants at Grattan Stadium. That match can be seen live on BBC Two.

And at the KC Stadium, Hull FC entertain Catalans Dragons in what should be a closely fought contest. Can the Dragons emulate the feats of Toulouse in 2005 and give a French flavour to the semi-finals?


Huddersfield Giants will be seeking to beat Bradford Bulls away for the first time in 38 years.

The last time was in a League match on 15 November 1969 when they won 16-0. They drew 7-7 the following season at Odsal, but since then have lost on 18 successive trips.

The Giants will however travel with high hopes as it is only a few weeks ago that they ended a 27-year wait for a home win against Bradford. They also recorded a superb win over Leeds Rhinos at the Grattan Stadium in last year
