Huddersfield Giants will face Warrington Wolves at the Totally Wicked Stadium the following day at 3.15pm after Leeds Rhinos Women tackle Wigan.

RL Commercial managing director Rhodri Jones said: "Congratulations to all eight sides on reaching the semi-finals – and on the manner in which they have done so.

"The quality of rugby over the weekend was outstanding. Eight teams are now just one step away from Betfred Challenge Cup finals day and every supporter attending every semi-final will go with realistic expectations of seeing their side walk out at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, June 8.

"I would also like to thank our partners at Doncaster and St Helens for hosting these matches. A number of semi-final venue options were explored, based on the multiple semi-final permutations, with stadium availability and the participating clubs the determining factors."
