A prestigious place in the Challenge Cup Final awaits the four semi-finalists, who will battle it out this coming weekend.
Leeds Rhinos play against Wigan Warriors on Saturday, July 14th at Huddersfield's Galpharm Stadium. Warrington Wolves then take on Huddersfield Giants at the City of Salford Community Stadium in Greater Manchester on Sunday, July 15th.
Rugby league fans can then book London hotels for Saturday, August 25th to attend the dramatic finale of the cup competition at Wembley Stadium.
The Challenge Cup is currently held by Wigan Warriors, who beat Leeds Rhinos in last year's final 28-18. They are also the most successful team in the history of the competition, having won it a record 18 times.
French and Russian teams also compete in The Challenge Cup, although it is dominated by the more successful British teams.
London Broncos, Catalan Dragons, St Helens and Leigh Centurions were all knocked out in this year's quarter finals.
