Joining Leeds in tonight's Challenge Cup semi-final draw will be Bradford, 30-18 victors over Wakefield, Widnes - who saw off Hull 20- 0 - and St Helens, who beat Wigan's conquerors Salford 46-26 on Saturday.

The New Zealand forward Sonny Whakarau, playing on loan with Trinity after agreeing to sign for Keighley, ended his Wakefield career with three tries yesterday but could not prevent Bradford reaching the last four.

Although Widnes out-played Hull yesterday, the First Division side had their moments with Tevita Vaikona repeatedly causing problems and going close twice. Two tries in the final 10 minutes from Widnes ended the lower division club's challenge.
