WOLVES will need to repeat their 2010 heroics in order to reach the semi finals of the Tetley's Challenge Cup for the fifth time in six years.

Tony Smith's men will travel to Bradford Bulls, Super League's current bottom club, at Odsal Stadium on the weekend of June 7/8.

Bradford gave holders Wolves an almighty battle on their home turf at the same stage in 2010 before Wolves prevailed 26-22 and went on to win the competition back-to-back for the first time in their history.

Chris Hicks, two, Ryan Atkins, Lee Briers and Vinnie Anderson got Warrington's all-important tries on that tense occasion at Odsal.

Wolves also defeated Bradford en route to their last success in the competition, securing a home 32-16 triumph at the fifth-round stage in 2012.

Bulls, who will be Wolves' next Super League opponents in West Yorkshire on Sunday, kick off 3pm, came from 16 points behind to secure perhaps the surprise result of the fifth round on Sunday as they overhauled improving French team Catalan Dragons 33-20.

Wolves had things slightly easier, defeating Championship side Doncaster 68-0 at home.
