Top Price on every team to win the Challenge Cup

The Challenge Cup is picking up pace as we look forward to the 5th round this weekend.

No matter who you fancy to lift the trophy at the end of the season you can get the best value at William Hill. The big 3 in the betting have relatively easy ties but could there be a cupset on the cards?

Any major team knocked out would mean a massive change in the outright odds and with an offer as good as ours what better time is there to back your team.

The Warrington Wolves warmed up for their clash with Championship 1 side Swinton with a 62-0 demolition of Castleford in the Super League last Friday. The Wolves are joint favourites for the trophy outright along with Wigan. Warrington have won the cup for two years in a row, beating rivals Leeds on both occasions. Those victories marked their sixth and seven Challenge Cup wins but they've got some way to go before they can match the 17 won by Wigan.

The Warriors haven't won the competition since 2002, a far cry from their illustrious teams of the past that made this trophy their own. Eight straight wins in the late eighties and early nineties cemented the Cherry and White's place in Challenge Cup folklore. In the fifth round they face a Roses derby against the Bradford Bulls.

 

The full fixture list for the fifth round is as follows:

Leeds v Harlequins
Salford v Hull KR
Warrington v Swinton
Wakefield v Castleford
Widnes v Hull FC
Huddersfield v Catalan Dragons
St Helens v Featherstone
Bradford v Wigan
