Leeds draw St Helens in Challenge Cup third round


THE first round of this year’s Challenge Cup  to involve Super League teams has thrown up a tie between two of the best – Leeds and St Helens.

Round three of rugby league’s most famous knockout competition was drawn at Victoria Park in Warrington on Monday morning following the completion of round two the previous day.
