There were no real shocks in the fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.
In the tie of the round Wigan got one step nearer Wembley with a 22-18 win at Leeds. Ex-St George Illawarra stand off, Trent Barrett was the man of the match as the Warriors defence held the Rhinos out in the last quarter of the game, to complete a second successive win at Headingley Carnegie Stadium this season.
Two Lesley Vainikolo tries helped Bradford to defeat Wakefield at a wet Belle Vue. Elsewhere form side Huddersfield Giants easily disposed of Salford City Reds, at a muddy Willows.
The rest of ties where all straightforward for the Super League clubs, except at Whitehaven, who put up a brave performance against French outfit Catalans Dragons by only loosing by 10 points.
The draw for the quarter Final will take place on Tuesday afternoon.
Salford City Reds 10-36 Huddersfield Giants
St Helens 70-10 Rochdale
Leeds Rhinos 22-18 Wigan Warriors
Hull FC 44-6 Sheffield
Oldham 6-66 Harlequins RL
