Match Pack: Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Semi Finals

A place at Wembley Stadium is at stake this Sunday as Leeds Rhinos Women go head to head with Wigan Warriors at the Totally Wicked Stadium for a place in the Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Final, kick off 12.30pm.

Lois Forsell's Rhinos hope to return to the capital after coming up short in last year's Final, whilst  a win for Dennis Betts' Wigan would see the club reach the final for the first time in their history.

Ahead of the teams taking to the field, here is your snapshot preview of everything you need to know about tonight's teams:

21-man squad recap

Wigan Warriors

In brief

- One change from Dennis Betts sees Sinead Doria replace Gracie Bradshaw in the Wigan lineup.

- The Warriors take on the Rhinos for the third time at this stage of the Challenge Cup, having lost the last two in 2018 and 2023.

- Seven members of the Warriors side featured in the defeat to Leeds in last year's semi final (Anna Davies, Holly Speakman, Cerys Jones, Vicky Molyneux, Mary Coleman, Rachel Thompson, Sarah Bardsley).

- Davies is the Warriors' top try scorer so far this season with 12 tries in 7 appearances. 

Leeds Rhinos

In brief

- Lois Forsell has named a largely unchanged team from the one that defeated York in the Betfred Super League last weekend.

- Beth Lockwood has been included in the squad for the first time this season after missing the start through injury.

- Caitlin Beevers and Shona Hoyle who were both try scorers in last week's win against York are both in the squad. Beevers has four semi finals appearances in the Cup to her name, which are all with Leeds. Hoyle has three appearances with two teams since 2019 in Castleford and St Helens.

- Rhinos captain Hanna Butcher has appeared in every Cup semi final for the Rhinos since the club's inaugural season in 2018. Winger Sophie Robinson, prop Grace Field and centre Amy Hardcastle are also some of the most experienced players at this stage of the Cup competition too.
