Carnegie Challenge Cup Round 4 review
The road to Wembley got underway this weekend for the 12 Super League Clubs. In a round where there were no shocks Castleford, who let slip a 14-0 half time lead, were the only Super league side to exit the competition.
World Champions Leeds Rhinos were given a scare by Welsh side Celtic Crusaders who came back from 14-0 down to only trail by four points at the break, but Leeds upped their tempo in the second half to run out winners. Elsewhere Warrington were given a game by Leigh who only lost by 12 points and the same for Featherstone who were competitive against last years runners-up Catalans Dragons.
Holders St Helens easy disposed of London Skolars, as did Wigan who thrashed SM Pia. Bradford Bulls ran in 17 tries as they demolished Toulouse in a club record win.
Injury hit Wakefield Wildcats, easy disposed of the unbeaten National League leaders Salford City Reds in tie that on paper had the making of an upset.
The Draw for the fifth round will take place on Tuesday night with the prospect of some exciting ties.
