WARRINGTON Wolves have been paired with Hull FC in the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

The sides will face off as part of the semi-final double header at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday, July 27.

The Wire will be looking to reach the final for the second year in a row and keep alive their chances of a first Challenge Cup title since 2012.

They will have to get past a Black and Whites side they lost to in the 2016 final, while they were also beaten by them in the 2013 semi-final in Huddersfield.

Wolves reached the last-four by beating FC's city rivals Hull KR 28-22 on Friday night, while Lee Radford's side thrashed cup holders Catalans 51-8 the previous evening.

The other semi-final will see Super League leaders St Helens take on Championship side Halifax.

Hull FC won 19-12 at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in Super League on May 18 and after that game, Radford described posts by The Wire's media team as "disrespectful," adding that being told they had conceded 143 points in the previous two meetings between the sides had done his team talk for him.

Following the draw, The Wire's official Twitter account was at it again...
