The fourth round draw of the rugby league Challenge Cup has taken place today and it has thrown up some interesting games and forthcoming scenarios for the sport.

Five of the 16 matches in the 4th round will take place between Super League clubs, which essentially means that there will definitely be at least seven none SL clubs still in the cup when the 5th round draw is made next month.

The standout tie from the 4th round will see the 2013 SL league leaders shield winners Huddersfield Giants take on current league leaders St Helens.

Throw into the mix a West Yorkshire derby between Wakefield and Leeds, and you've arguably got two of the televised games nailed down already.

This is not to say that there aren't any other mouth-watering games for rugby league fans to feast their eyes on.

Salford Red Devils will travel to Hull FC, and Warrington will also travel to the same city to face off against Hull KR.

Catalan Dragons host London Broncos in the other Super League tie, and the two picks of the bunch from the rest are Halifax at home to Widnes, and Castleford's trip to Batley.
