The fifth round of the Carnegie Challenge produced no real shocks but some great efforts by Championship clubs Featherstone Rovers and Batley Bulldogs as they gave their Super League
opponents a real game.
On Friday night, Holders Wigan were made to work for their 32-16 win over a brave Featherstone Rovers at the Bigfellas Stadium.
After dumping Super League
neighbours Castleford out of the previous round the Championship part-timers smelt blood.
