Workington Draw💪 Leeds in Challenge Cup 5⃣th Round

  |   Rugby

Leeds have been drawn at home to League 1 club Workington in the next round of the Challenge Cup.

The Cumbrian part-timers, one of only two League 1 clubs still in the competition, are coached by former Bradford, St Helens and Great Britain stand-off Leon Pryce.

Pryce said: "It's an absolutely fantastic draw for the club. It will be a great day out for all of Workington. This is why the Challenge Cup is so special."

The tie at Headingley will pit Leeds prop Brad Singleton against his younger brother Perry, a centre or second-rower with Workington.

The four Super League clubs entering at the fifth-round stage were all kept apart, with Hull KR, London Broncos and Salford paired with Championship opponents in Leigh, Halifax and Rochdale respectively.

Halifax beat London 26-16 at the Shay in the Championship 12 months ago and Broncos coach Danny Ward is expecting another difficult trip into West Yorkshire.

"It's going to be a tough game but one we look forward to," said Ward, whose side have defied expectations by winning three of their first seven games in Super League.
