CC 4th Round: Leeds RhinosThe Wolves will travel to Headingley for the 4th Round of the 2005 Powergen Challenge Cup on Saturday 2nd April. The game will give the Wolves just three days to recover after the Round 8 Engage Super League match against the Widnes Vikings at the Halliwell-Jones.Head coach Paul Cullen commented, "We were very fortunate last year to have played three national League sides, but with all due respect this wasn't the ideal preparation for Wigan in the Semi. But if we get past this hurdle we will deserve to go one better than last year.""We'd like to think we will have some of our more experienced players back from injury in time for that game, because we are going to need them.""It's without doubt the toughest possible draw. Leeds are the form side, and it's at Headingley. They're going to be a very difficult side to overcome."The teams have met 18 times in the competition over its 108 year history with the Leeds side bagging 9 wins to the Wolves 8, with a quarter-final draw in 1966. The last time the teams met in the competition was in 1996 at Wilderspool with Leeds running out 30-10 victors.
