With all Challenge Cup fixtures now confirmed, it’s going to be tough viewing for Featherstone Rovers fans.

Their fixture against Catalans Dragons will take place on Saturday 26 March with a kick-off time at 2.30pm, however, there are no TV broadcast deals for French TV in Challenge Cup fixtures.

That means that Rovers fans will not be able to watch their side’s fixture on TV unless they go.

However, Featherstone are trying desperately to get some kind of livestream available to their supporters ahead of the sixth round clash in the south of France.

The details for Hull FC’s Betfred Challenge Cup Sixth Round clash against Sheffield Eagles have also been confirmed.

The Black & Whites will take on the Betfred Championship side at Featherstone’s Millennium Stadium on Saturday 26th March, with a 2.00pm kick-off.

The fixture, a home match for the Eagles, will be played in West Yorkshire due to Sheffield’s new home ground at the Olympic Legacy Park not being completed yet.

FC have twice visited Featherstone in the cup in recent seasons, with victories over Rovers in 2018 and 2021, but it will be the Eagles who are this year’s opposition.

The Black & Whites, who fell narrowly short of reaching the Challenge Cup Final in last year’s competition with a narrow defeat to St Helens, will be hoping to reach the Quarter-Final stage of competition for the eighth year in a row.
