Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Quarter-finalists confirmed

The quarter-finalists of the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup are now known, following the completion today (Sunday 3 April) of the competition’s group stage.

Cup holders St Helens secured top spot in Group A – and a home tie against Group B runner-up Huddersfield Giants – courtesy of a commanding 42-0 win at Warrington Wolves.

The Wolves still qualify for the quarter-finals as Group A runner-up, but must travel to face Leeds Rhinos who were in outstanding form as they defeated Leigh Miners Rangers Women 92-0 to clinch first place in Group B.  

York City Knights’ handsome Group C victory at Bradford Bulls last week had already earned them a quarter-final home tie against the runner-up in Group D, who was today confirmed as Oulton Raidettes after the thriving community club overcame Wakefield Trinity 14-12 in a titanic clash in front of the Our League cameras.   

Last week’s win over Dewsbury Moor had guaranteed Wigan Warriors runner up place in Group C – and today their quarter-final opponents were confirmed as Featherstone Rovers, whose demolition derby with local rivals Castleford Tigers saw them clinch top spot in Group D. 

Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Quarter final draw (ties to be played on the weekend of 9/10 April):

  • Featherstone Rovers v Wigan Warriors
  • Leeds Rhinos v Warrington Wolves 
  • St Helens v Huddersfield Giants 
  • York City Knights v Oulton Raidettes

The semi-finals of the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup will be held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington, on Sunday 24 April – a double-header which will be shown live on the BBC’s digital platforms, including BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app. 

Matches will kick off at 2.30pm and 5pm, with four sides aiming to reach the final at Leeds United’s Elland Road Stadium on Saturday 7 May. The women’s final is part of a triple-header alongside the men’s semi-finals, with all three matches to be broadcast live on the BBC.
