Rhinos face Saints in Betfred Womens Challenge Cup semi final

Following their impressive win over Bradford Bulls in the Quarter Final, Leeds Rhinos Women will face rivals St Helens in the semi final of the Betfred Womens Challenge Cup.

The game is a repeat of the 2019 semi final which was an epic 10-16 win for the Rhinos at the Totally Wicked Stadium en route to retaining the trophy they won in 2018.

In the other semi final, York City Knights will play Castleford Tigers. The Knights, who are coached by former Rhinos Head Coach Adam Cuthbertson, were bolstered by the arrival of several former Castleford players last week in time to defeat Wigan Warriors 30-24 to make the final four.

Details of the venue and coverage of the semi-finals, which will both be played on Saturday May 22, will be confirmed early this week.

The BBC confirmed on Saturday that the Final, which will be played before the men’s semi-finals on Saturday, June 5, will be shown live on BBC2 for the first time.
