Featherstone host Wigan in cup
Featherstone's reward for knocking out Castleford in the fourth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup is a plum home tie against holders Wigan.
Rovers coach Daryl Powell could hardly conceal his excitement after Monday's fifth-round draw paired them with the Warriors, who hammered North Wales Crusaders 98-4 on Sunday with Sam Tomkins scoring six tries.
"Being at home, it's a fantastic draw for us," said Powell, whose part-timers beat the Tigers 23-16 at the Bigfellas Stadium on Saturday.
"It's a tough draw - they're an outstanding team full of quality individuals - but I thought we handled one of the better players in the competition in Rangi Chase pretty well and we'll try to come up with a plan deal with Sam Tomkins.
"I'm glad we're at home. We know it's a tough challenge for us but we're excited by it."
