1st May 2013

The draw for the first knock-out round of the 2013 Northern Rail Cup has been made and will see current Cup holders Halifax begin the defence of their title away to Dewsbury Rams.

Last year’s beaten finalists, Featherstone Rovers, will take on Leigh Centurions in one of the stand-out games of the round following the draw which was conducted earlier this evening at The Shay, Halifax, venue for this year’s Northern Rail Finals day on Saturday July 20.

Having finished top of both preliminary groups to progress to the knock-out stages, Kingstone Press Championship One sides London Skolars and North Wales Crusaders will look to continue their cup journeys against Whitehaven and Swinton Lions, respectively.
