Challenge Cup Sixth Round draw ball numbers have been revealed as the likes of Castleford Tigers, Hull FC and Wigan Warriors join

The ball numbers for the Sixth Round draw of the Betfred Challenge Cup have been confirmed, with 11 Betfred Super League teams entering the competition at this stage.

The Round Six draw will be made at Elland Road – host of this year’s Sem-Finals and Women’s Challenge Cup Final – and will be conducted by Lee Crooks and Ben Taylor. Crooks will make the draw 40 years on from Hull FC’s memorable Challenge Cup Final Replay over Widnes at Elland Road, while Taylor joins BBC Look North and BBC iPlayer from 6:45pm following the Royal Navy’s impressive Cup run.
