Hull KR face Sheffield Eagles in Ladbrokes Challenge Cup 4th Round
The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Fourth Round draw has thrown up plenty more intriguing ties with former Super League side Hull Kingston Rovers given a home draw against the Sheffield Eagles.
HMS Bulwark in Plymouth was the grand setting for last night’s ceremony with Major Jack Duckitt Royal Marines (Chairman Royal Marine Rugby League Association and Vice Chairman Royal Navy Rugby League Association) picking the home balls.
The away sides were drawn by former Great Britain and St. Helens captain Paul Sculthorpe.
A total of 24 clubs, representing the Kingstone Press Championship, League 1 and the only remaining community club, Haydock, were drawn against each other.
