Two huge Challenge Cup ties selected for BBC TV coverage

BBC Sport have selected two heavyweight Betfred Challenge Cup Quarter Finals for live coverage on the weekend of June 17-18 – with both to be shown on BBC One and iPlayer.

On Saturday June 17, the tie between Hull FC and St Helens will be shown from the MKM Stadium with a 230pm kick-off – coverage on BBC One and iPlayer starting at 205pm.

That will be followed on Sunday June 18 by the clash between the Cup holders Wigan Warriors and the current Super League leaders Warrington Wolves from the DW Stadium – again with kick-off at 230pm, and coverage on BBC One and iPlayer starting at 205pm.

Details of the timing and coverage of the remaining two Quarter Finals will be confirmed tomorrow.

These see York RLFC host Super League side Leigh Leopards after battling them a number of times last season in the Championship and struggling conceding 100 points on one occasion.

The other game sees Hull KR and Salford Red Devils battle for a place in the final four.

The semi-finals are taking place at separate venues unlike in recent times.
