Raynor set to face Wigan
Former Great Britain winger Gareth Raynor is set to line up for Challenge Cup giant-killers Featherstone in their eagerly-awaited fifth-round clash with holders Wigan later this month.
Raynor, who was a Cup winner with Hull in 2005, has yet to make his debut for the Championship outfit, but will get a chance to face the Warriors after Tangi Ropati was ruled out for up to three months with a broken jaw sustained in last Saturday's defeat of Castleford.
"We gave him a bit of time away just to clear his head and make sure he could fully commit," said Featherstone coach Daryl Powell. "I think he's ready to do that so it's over to him now. He's a strong chance of slotting in there on the wing."
Wigan have taken over as 5-2 favourites from Warrington, who will face Super League rivals Bradford for a place in the last 16.
The only other all-Super League tie will be at the City of Salford Stadium, where the Reds have a chance to avenge their recent 56-16 mauling by champions Leeds.
Rhinos skipper Kevin Sinfield, who scored the points that broke Lewis Jones' club record that night, says his side will be expecting a sterner challenge.
"It will be tough going there," he said. "We played really well there earlier in the season but this is the Cup and they will want to write some history at their new home."
Catalan Dragons will be at home to 1998 winners Sheffield Eagles, while Oldham have landed a potentially lucrative home tie against St Helens, Huddersfield host Swinton and London Broncos go to John Kear's Batley.
There will be at least one Championship club in the quarter-finals, with Leigh playing Halifax at Leigh Sports Village.
One tie will be broadcast live by Sky Sports on Friday, April 27, with the BBC showing a game the following day.
