Rugby League legends Andy Gregory and Lee Crooks will mark the 20 year anniversary since they took part in the last Challenge Cup final replay in 1982 by conducting the draw for the Fourth Round of this season’s competition.

Crooks was on the winning side of the result when Hull defeated Widnes 18-9 at Elland Road after the initial final had concluded in a 14-14 draw at Wembley, and he’ll be joined by five time Challenge Cup winner Gregory on Monday March 26 to conduct the draw live on BBC Radio 5Live and 5Live Sports Extra.

The draw is scheduled to take place during the interval of Manchester Utd v Fulham on BBC 5Live at 8.50pm sandwiched with a Rungby League Cup special on 5Live Sports Extra presented by George Riley between 8.20pm and 9.30pm.
