HUDDERSFIELD Giants have been handed the chance to gain revenge for last season’s Challenge Cup final defeat against Warrington Wolves in the fifth round of this year’s competition.
The Giants’ reward for their impressive 40-12 triumph over Hull KR is another home clash against the Wolves on the weekend of May 7 to 9.
It is expected the tie will once against be televised by the BBC – most probably on the Saturday – after the cameras were at the Galpharm yesterday.

And even though Giants chief Nathan Brown won’t be using the term ‘revenge’ himself, he’s fully aware that’s how the last 16 clash will be widely portrayed.
“I’m sure the fans and the media will be using that phrase a lot between now and the day of the tie, but we won’t,” said Brown, whose side were beaten 25-16 in last season’s Wembley final.
“For us, it’ll be all about producing the performance on the day so we can take the next big step towards having another shot at getting to Wembley.
“This is a very tough draw against a good footy side, and we know we’re going to need to be good to progress. If you want to be successful in this competition you’ve got to beat the best sides at some stage.
“That’s what we had to do against Hull KR and that’s what we’ve now got to do against Warrington.
“I thought our first-half display yesterday was our best of the year, and we’ve got to build on that.”
