2019 Coral Challenge Cup semi-final programme now on sale


When it comes to the official matchday programme, it’s three for the price of one with this weekend’s Coral Challenge Cup triple-header at the University of Bolton Stadium.

A day at Wembley beckons for the men’s semi-finalists with Hull FC taking on Warrington while Super League leaders St Helens face Championship side Halifax, and to kick things off Women’s Super League leaders Castleford Tigers play reigning champions Leeds Rhinos in the Women’s Challenge Cup final.

Therefore, the official programme is jam-packed with interviews and features from players and coaches of all six teams.

Warrington skipper Chris Hill looks forward to possibly reaching another final, while Hull prop Scott Taylor tries to explain why the Airlie Birds have been so inconsistent this season. Opposing coaches Steve Price and Lee Radford also give their verdict on the magic of the cup.

Saints coach Justin Holbrook and skipper James Roby both insist complacency will not be an issue as Halifax duo Scott Grix and James Woodburn-Hall reveal how they can create a massive shock – just as Fax did against the same opposition 32 years ago as their former winger Wilf George recalls.

League legend Jonathan Davies also reveals who he thinks will be the match-winners, while there are also chats with the coaches of the women’s finalists in Adam Cuthbertson and Lindsay Anfield, with player reaction coming via exclusive interviews with Rhinos pair Courtney Hill and Fran Goldthorp and Tigers’ Gemma Roche and Kelsey Gentles.

Programmes will be on sale around the stadium throughout the day, or you can buy your copy via our online shop or by calling 0207 121 5000.
