Castleford Tigers and Featherstone Rovers have both been handed glamour home ties in the sixth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

The Tigers will host St Helens at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle in a tie that would seem certain to be televised live by the BBC.

Rovers can expect a huge crowd at the LD Nutrition Stadium when they take on Hull FC, who have won the trophy for the last two years.

Matches are due to take place over the weekend of May 12 and 13.

The full sixth round draw is:

Hull KR v Wigan

Castleford v St Helens

Toronto v Warrington

Leigh v Salford

Featherstone v Hull FC

Catalans v Whitehaven

Widnes v Leeds

Huddersfield v Wakefield
