WATCH LIVE Betfred Challenge Cup Round 3: Featherstone Rovers v Halifax Panthers

The all-Championship clash is live on The Sportsman
14:45, 12 Mar 2023

Welcome to The Sportsman’s continued live coverage of the Betfred Challenge Cup in 2023, with a huge all-Championship clash between Featherstone Rovers and Halifax Panthers.

Our live coverage will begin at 2:45pm, with kick-off at 3:00pm.

Rovers are currently heading up the Championship table, with their five wins from five attempts putting them two points clear of the chasing pack. But head coach Sean Long has insisted that there is much more work to be done even after their 26-12 victory over Bradford Bulls on Monday, and the players will be hoping to act on their boss' warning on Sunday when they host Halifax at the Millennium Stadium.

Simon Grix's troops have already made one fruitless trip to Post Office Road this season, the Panthers coming out on the wrong end of a 46-22 scoreline in early February. And while they have won every home game so far in the second tier in 2023 there will be a desire to turn around their faltering form on the road with a statement victory to take them into round four of the world game's oldest knockout tournament.

Sunday's match is the fourth of at least 20 matches set to be broadcast live on The Sportsman in 2023. You can catch the match live on this page from 2:45pm, with a simultaneous live stream on The Sportsman Rugby League YouTube channel.
