Challenge Cup Semi-Final Draw

The ties, which will be shown live nation-wide by the BBC, are as follows:

Saturday 28th July: Bradford Bulls v St. Helens, Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield (k.o. 12.30pm)

Sunday 29th July: Wigan Warriors v Catalans Dragons, Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington (k.o. 3.15pm)

Bradford Bulls coach Steve McNamara claims he is almost relieved the Bulls have drawn holders St Helens in the Carnegie Challenge Cup semi-finals - so they do not have to play them in the final.

Reigning world and engage Super League champions Saints have beaten the Bulls three times in cup finals in the summer era, in 1996, 1997, and 2001, and will renew their rivalry in this year
