HUDDERSFIELD Giants have been drawn away to Super League opposition in the Challenge Cup for the first time in six seasons.
Last year's beaten finalists face a trip to Salford in the fifth round over the weekend of May 11 to 13.
It is the first time since 2001 when the Giants were beaten at St Helens that Huddersfield have been made to travel to a fellow top-flight team.
The Salford tie is, however, a repeat of last season's quarter-final clash when the Giants secured a 44-14 victory over the City Reds at the Galpharm in June.
It's also a repeat of the Super League clash two weeks ago when the Giants suffered an 18-16 home defeat.
And Giants coach Jon Sharp knows his side faces another big test next month.
"Salford are a quality team, a Super League team and are always tough to beat at home," said Sharp.
"On their day, they are capable of beating any side in the competition, particularly at The Willows.
"It goes without saying that this will be a very hard tie.
"But I think we clearly showed with our performance against York on Sunday that we're determined to do well in the Challenge Cup once again.
"Everyone loved last year's adventure when we went all the way to the final and, having had a taste of what it was like, I know how desperate he boys are to sample it again.
"And it hasn't gone unnoticed that we beat York and Salford on our way to reaching the final a year ago."
Details of the Cup fixture have yet to be announced, but it's highly likely it will be on the Friday night (May 11), Salford's traditional time.
