Challenge Cup Round 4 televised games confirmed

The Challenge Cup Round 4 ties have been confirmed with a number of mouthwatering ties – especially as Championship rivals go head-to-head – set to take place.

The pick of the ties is arguably Halifax Panthers at home against Featherstone Rovers, both of whom are battling for promotion to Super League.

BBC Sport will continue their round by round coverage on Sunday February 27 by showing the Royal Navy’s first appearance at this stage of the competition, and a trip to the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium to face Batley Bulldogs – who were the first-ever winners of the Challenge Cup 125 years ago.

That tie will kick off at 1pm, and it will be followed at 3pm by The Sportsman’s coverage of the meeting of two ambitious Betfred Championship clubs, York City Knights and Newcastle Thunder, at the LNER Community Stadium.

Then on Monday night, Premier Sports will show their first Betfred Challenge Cup tie of the season, the blockbuster meeting of two local rivals with rich pedigree in the competition – Leigh Centurions versus Widnes Vikings.

The updated schedule of Fourth Round ties is as follows:

Sunday February 27

Batley Bulldogs v Royal Navy (1pm, live on BBC Sport)
Doncaster v Whitehaven (2pm)
Halifax Panthers v Featherstone Rovers (3pm)
