Matty Ashton scored one of five Warrington tries as they travelled to St Helens and won big in the Challenge Cup quarters

Warrington’s reward for their stunning 31-8 win at St Helens on Sunday will be a Betfred Challenge Cup semi-final against 2022 finalists Huddersfield.

Sam Burgess’ side will fancy their chances of a first Wembley appearance since 2018 after turning on the style in the second half to sink Paul Wellens’ Saints.

But they will come up against a Huddersfield side who pulled off an equally impressive performance in their 34-6 win over Catalans Dragons in Perpignan on Saturday.

In the women’s competition, holders St Helens face York Valkyrie while Wigan take on Leeds. The matches will be staged as two double-headers on May 18 and May 19 at neutral venues yet to be announced.

Wigan cruise past Castleford into Challenge Cup semis

Winger Liam Marshall scored four of Wigan’s 12 tries as the Warriors cruised into the Challenge Cup semi-finals with a 60-6 thrashing of Castleford at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Marshall touched down twice in the first half, with Brad O’Neill, Bevan French and Adam Keighran also crossing, before their momentum was briefly halted as Willie Isa sustained what appeared a serious leg injury, and Innes Senior pulled one back to make it 28-6 at the break.

But the visitors put their foot down once more after the interval and continued to score at will, Marshall grabbing another couple alongside tries from Kruise Leeming, Abbas Miski (two), Jake Wardle and Tyler Dupree.

The draw will see Wigan face Hull KR in the semi-finals after Rovers defeated Leigh Leopards on Saturday.
