2021 Challenge Cup Semi-Final Draw





The draw for the semi-finals of the 2021 Betfred Challenge Cup was made at half time during the fourth quarter final at Headingley, with the balls being pulled out of the bag by Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock.

Warrington Wolves and St Helens made it into the semi-finals yesterday evening and were joined earlier today by Hull FC after they knocked out the Wigan Warriors.

The semi-finals will be played on the 5th June before the final at Wembley on the 17th July.

Powell or bogey team.

Then if we win, revenge mission for St Helens for 2019 or us for 2016.

No easy path with the teams left in, glad we've avoided Salford.

That's the best draw we could have got but I think Cas will be thinking the same. Glad we avoided saints anyway, shudder to think of getting them in the final again. Despite the 2019 Cup win against them they're the team I really don't like losing to because of that long losing streak against them, defeat to them just brings it all flooding back. Still we can start to worry about that if it happens.

We haven't lost a knockout game to saints for over 10 years. Let them worry about us, it's obviously a hoodoo!!

Really enjoyed the Cas Salford game, great drama and entertainment and a welcome antidote to the Wires game.

Which brings me to Henderson's stint as co-commentator. How good was he? Knowledgeable, infectious, eloquent and passionate ....... he should take up coaching.

Not really a weak team at this point. I suppose I was happy we avoided saints. I thought to myself wire fans will be happy with cas or Salford, but Salford beat you in semis last year and we beat you in the playoffs year before and I dunno how you feel about Cas, you'll start marginal favourites but it's a coin toss game, same with hull in the equation .
"I'm sorry, but I would hope that we would beat Cas with a 1 day turnaround."

An arrogant Wigan fan a few days before we stuffed them 18-4 at the JJB.

I didn’t care who we got, but I bet Saints wanted to avoid Wire.

It will be interesting to see what venue the RFL goes with.
I guess there will be a restricted support numbers but would need to be a big enough venue to hold supporters of 4 SL teams plus the women's CC final.
This could be the first time in years that a season ticket is an advantage in getting tickets to a big game.
It will be interesting to see how the RFL and the club goes about ticket sales.

My guess is Headingley again.
