French connection

HALIFAX will have a quick chance to make amends for their opening league defeat in Toulouse when they head back to France in the Northern Rail Cup.

Matt Calland’s men will make the trip in the quarter finals, which take place from April 7 to 10.

Last night’s draw will send holders Batley to neighbours Dewsbury while the showdown between Leigh Centurions and Widnes Vikings will be broadcast live by Sky Sports on Thursday April 7.

In the remaining tie, Hunslet Hawks play Featherstone Rovers.
