The Quarter Final starts tomorrow with Leeds vs Wigan. Here is a list of all the fixtures and who I think will win.

Leeds Rhinos vs Wigan Warriors - Sat 31st May
Hull KR vs St Helens - Sun 1st Jun
Bradford Bulls vs Hull FC - Sun 1st Jun
Wakefield Wildcats vs Oldham - Sun 1st Jun

I hope my top prediction is right, but Oldham have been surprisers this year and might get through. I think Wakefield will be too strong for them though.

Should be a good one Leeds v Wigan. We seem to have the edge on Leeds in past encounters but Leeds have been superb this season.

It will be a tough match, but I think we will edge it today if we play like we have been. I hope we see a performance like that Hull match. What an awesome match we had then. When you watched you just saw how much work they must put in at training to perform like that.

What a match. Worth having a TV. Wigan did battle well and it was very competitive. Peacock played his heart out. Webb and McGuire had a brilliant try-saving tackle on the wing. Well played to Wigan.

Yes it was a good game and either side could have won it. Leeds were always just ahead though and must be confident for Wembley now.

Leeds 23 - 16 Wigan
Hull KR 18 - 24 St Helens
Bradford 16 - 22 Hull FC
Wakefield 46 - 4 Oldham

Leeds managed to hold on against Wigan, Hull KR gave Saints a close match, 4 yellow cards in the first half, two for each team, put hull somehow ahead at half time even having 11 men against Bradfords 13 and Wakefield had a scare from Oldham at the start, but managed to keep hold of the game and thrashed Oldham.

A good round of Challenge Cup leaves Leeds Rhinos, St Helens, Hull and Wakefield in the draw for the semi finals. They are going to keep Leeds an Saints apart again, so that they get alot of ticket sales for the final like last year. It backfired then as Leeds got beat by Hull.

Leeds and Saints are obvious favourites.

Saying that, both Leeds and Saints have been known to have bad performances in this competition, so you never know what will happen. That is why Challenge Cup is such a good competition. Anyone can win.
