The RFL has accepted a request from Widnes Vikings to withdraw from the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup, and focus instead on their preparations for the Women’s Rugby League Championship campaign later this year.
The Vikings have been replaced in Group C by another Championship team, Dewsbury Moor.
They will face the 2021 BWCC finalists, York City Knights, in their opening game next weekend and will also play Wigan Warriors and Bradford Bulls – with the top two teams from each of the four groups qualifying for the Quarter Finals in April.
