Holders Warrington Wolves will play St Helens in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup in a repeat of last year’s Wembley final.

The withdrawal of Toronto Wolfpack and five other sides who play in the Championship or League One – which were among the leagues to end their season early due to the coronavirus – led to the sixth round having to be redrawn.

Castleford Tigers will face Hull FC and 2018 winners Catalans Dragons will go up against Wakefield Trinity in the last 16.

The winners of those ties will then progress to face Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils, respectively, in the quarter-finals.

Leeds Rhinos will take on Hull KR in the only other quarter-final tie where the two competing sides are already known.
