Castleford Tigers must overcome the reigning champions in the quarter-finals of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup if they are to make it to Wembley this year.

The Tigers were the second team out of the hat when they were drawn out away to Wigan Warriors with the tie set to take place on June 7 or 8.

The quarter-final is likely to be the main featured game on BBC as it is the most attractive looking tie in the round.

The other ties are Leeds Rhinos against Leigh Centurions; Bradford Bulls against Warrington Wolves; and Widnes Vikings against Keighley Cougars.
