Former Leigh player Tony Barrow and Wakefield Trinity legend Neil Fox MBE will conduct the draw for the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup quater finals.

It will follow the sixth round game between Wakefield and Leigh at Belle Vue on Sunday May 17.

Rugby League Hall of Fame member Fox, who still holds the sport’s record for most career points with 6,220, won the Challenge Cup with Wakefield three times and picked up the Lance Todd Trophy in 1962 for his heroics in the victory against Huddersfield.

Barrow played stand-off in the 1971 Leigh team that pulled-off off one of the greatest ever Cup shocks by beating Leeds 24-7 at Wembley Stadium in front of over 85,000 supporters.

Leigh reached this stage of the competition with a dramatic giant-killing win over Salford Red Devils last month.

Dewsbury Rams v Warrington Wolves (8.00)
