CUP REACTION: Warrington Wolves return to where it all began
WOLVES will face Hull Kingston Rovers in the fourth round of the Tetley's Challenge Cup.
The Humbersiders' Craven Park ground was the scene of Wolves' dramatic golden-point success in the quarter finals in 2009, the season of Wolves' first of three cup final successes under current boss Tony Smith.
Lee Briers was the drop-goal hero on that day, steering Wolves to a semi-final against Wigan Warriors and eventual Wembley victory over Huddersfield Giants.
It was one of the first ties in Wolves' most successful run in the competition.
In contrast, Craven Park was the ground where Hull KR as a Championship-level club produced a shock quarter-final defeat of Wolves live on TV in 2006.
This year's tie will take place on April 5 or 6, with Wolves also facing the Robins in Super League at The Halliwell Jones Stadium on April 11.
