Challenge Cup Sixth Round Draw: TV details revealed but one Super League side will not be in the hat

The Challenge Cup Sixth Round draw will take place tonight as Championship hopefuls go up against Super League sides for a place in the quarter-finals.

The draw will take place tonight at 6:45pm from the home of Leeds United – Elland Road – and will be broadcast live on BBC Look North and BBC Sport Online.

11 Super League clubs will go into the hat, with one major absence.

Toulouse are not a member of the RFL and therefore were not obliged to enter the competition, but were invited to participate.

The French club turned down the offer and so will not join the sixth round draw, with the ties set to be played on the weekend of March 25-27.

Great Britain legend Lee Crooks and the Royal Navy’s Ben Taylor – known as ‘Yorkshire Prose’ and famous for his Yorkshire poetry – will draw the balls out of the hat.

The last Challenge Cup fifth round game takes place tonight between Leigh Centurions and Bradford Bulls with both sides vying for a spot live on Premier Sports.
