Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Quarter-Final draw
Former Bradford Bulls captain and Lance Todd Trophy winner Robbie Hunter-Paul will be joined by Ladbrokes Challenge Cup winner Nathan McAvoy on Sunday, May 13 for the quarter-final draw.
Hunter-Paul played in five Challenge Cup finals during his career, lifting the trophy twice with Bradford in 2000 and 2003 and was awarded the Lance Todd trophy in 1996 after scoring a hat-trick in the Bulls defeat to St Helens at Wembley Stadium. McAvoy played alongside Hunter-Paul in the 2000 final at Murrayfield, scoring a spectacular try in Bradford’s 24-18 victory over Leeds Rhinos.
Both former players are taking part in this year’s UK Red Ride to Wembley, which will see 26 participants cycle over 300 off-road miles from Old Trafford to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final in August, raising funds for Rugby League Cares.
The draw will be broadcast live from the Halliwell Jones Stadium on BBC Two following the Warrington Wolves v Toronto Wolfpack game on Sunday, May 13.
The eight winning sides from the sixth round will be entered in to the draws, with all quarter-final ties scheduled to take place over the weekend of June 2-3.
All quarter-final fixtures will be televised, with two fixtures selected to be shown on BBC 1 and BBC Two, whilst Sky Sports will also broadcast two games.
