Challenge Cup Semi-Finals Preview

Next weekend will see four teams battle for their place in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final.

We look ahead as Warrington Wolves face Leeds Rhinos and St Helens take on Catalans Dragons, in what promises to a titanic showdown as excitement builds towards the final at Wembley Stadium.

Last year’s champions Hull FC were narrowly defeated by St Helens in June, leaving the Saints only one victory away from a return to Wembley after a 10-year absence.

But before they get there, they have to face a Catalans outfit who battled their way into the semi-finals after dispatching Huddersfield Giants with a 20-6 victory. 

The Rhinos meanwhile will be looking for an elusive positive note to their season after suffering a tough time in the Super League, which has left them only 9th place in the table, leading to the dismissal of Head Coach Brian McDermott.

They will go to war with Warrington, who scored three unanswered tries in their quarter-final match against Wigan Warriors. The Wolves have not lifted the Cup since 2012, having won the title eight times before.

St Helens v Catalans will kick off the double header at 12:30 BST, with Leeds v Warrington following at 14:45 BST.

Both semi-final games with be broadcast live on BBC Two and will be hosted at Bolton Wanderers' 30,000-capacity Macron Stadium on Sunday, 5 August.
