The Super League champions were well below their best in gaining a 26-18 third-round win over an injury-hit Leeds but will be firm favourites in the next round as they seek a first Cup triumph since 2008.

Leigh and Huddersfield play their third-round tie on Sunday.

The quarter-finals will be played as two double-headers, each played behind closed doors at neutral venues, with Sky Sports to televise two ties on Friday, May 7, and BBC to show two the following day.

Wigan, who were 26-0 winners over part-timers York, will take on either Hull or Featherstone while Castleford, who edged out Hull KR 33-32 with a drop goal in the fourth period of extra time, will play Salford.

Quarter-final ties are: Featherstone or Hull v Wigan, Castleford v Salford, Catalans Dragons or Wakefield v Swinton or Warrington, St Helens v Leigh or Huddersfield.
