Siddal and Elland will both have home advantage in the second round of the Challenge Cup after Monday night’s draw.

Both Calderdale’s National Conference sides were in imperious form in last weekend’s first round fixtures, Elland easing past Leeds Met 26-0 while Siddal walloped the RAF 48-0 in Lincolnshire.

Karl Fairbank’s Elland will now host Egremont, while Gareth Greenwood’s Siddal will welcome the winner of the contest between Featherstone Lions and Queens to Chevinedge.

Both fixtures will be played on the weekend of February 14 and 15.

The Championship clubs, including Halifax, enter the competition at the third round stage.
