Why has there been a redraw?

Rugby league's prestigious and traditional showpiece knockout has been reshaped because of the unique set of circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 10 Super League clubs remaining in the competition were included in a redraw for the sixth round and the quarter finals.

This followed the withdrawal from the competition of Toronto Wolfpack and the five Betfred Championship and League 1 clubs who had earned places in the last 16.

Having considered all the options, and having received the support of the BBC and Coral, the RFL Board decided that a redraw of the sixth round was the best and fairest way of proceeding.

The road to the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup Final, which has been rescheduled for Saturday October 17, will begin with the two new sixth-round ties at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield on Saturday, August 22 – with both shown live on the BBC.

The remaining six Super League clubs in the competition receive a bye to the quarter finals on the weekend of September 18-20, to be televised by the BBC and Sky Sports.

As previously announced, the Coral Challenge Cup semi finals will be held on Saturday, October 3, with both matches shown live on the BBC.

The Final will follow two weeks later, with the venues for those matches to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Simon Johnson, the chairman of the RFL, said: “As with so much of sport and society in recent months, we have faced unique challenges in reshaping the Coral Challenge Cup.

“We are wholly sympathetic to the Championship and League 1 clubs who had earned places in the sixth round, but for various reasons and quite understandably, did not now feel it would be in their best interests to continue in the competition.

“We believe that the fairest way to proceed from here is the redraw. We hope that supporters and clubs will understand this decision.

“Given the quality of the clubs remaining in the competition, it means we are guaranteed some mouthwatering ties.

“We would like to place on record our gratitude to Coral, the BBC and the clubs for their recognition that we have had to be flexible given such an unusual situation.

“We are very pleased that the Coral Challenge Cup will continue, and the sport can look forward to some more memorable occasions and fascinating chapters in this historic competition.”

This was the original sixth-round draw:

Leeds Rhinos v Hull KR

Newcastle Thunder v Toronto Wolfpack

Salford Red Devils v St Helens

Sheffield Eagles v Hull FC

Wakefield Trinity v Featherstone Rovers

Widnes Vikings v Catalans Dragons

Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves

York City Knights v Castleford Tigers
