Venue and date set for Valkyrie's Semi-Final clash against St Helens


York Valkyrie will take on St Helens in the Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Semi-Finals in a double header at Warrington's Halliwell Jones Stadium on Saturday 22nd July (11.45am).


The clash between the top two in the Betfred Women's Super League will form part of a double header, alongside the Betfred Men's Challenge Cup Semi-Final between Leigh Leopards and St Helens (2.30pm).


Meanwhile on Sunday 23rd July, Headingley Stadium will host Wigan Warriors Women against Leeds Rhinos Women (2.15pm) in the other Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Semi-Final as well as the Betfred Men's Challenge Cup Semi-Final that sees Hull KR face Wigan Warriors (5pm).


Both Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Semi-Finals will be streamed live on BBC iPlayer while BBC 1 and BBC 2 will show Leigh Leopards v St Helens and Hull KR v Wigan Warriors respectively.


RL Commercial Managing Director Rhodri Jones said: "Yesterday’s draw has thrown up four intriguing and exciting semi-finals, which will be held at two superb rugby league grounds – decided in consultation with all the clubs – and brought live to millions of viewers at home by BBC Sport.


"The cup holders of both competitions – Saints Women and Wigan Warriors – have again made the semi-finals stage, but they have it all to do against York Valkyrie and Hull KR whose form and playing styles have really caught the eye this season.


“The Betfred Challenge Cup returns to Wembley Stadium on Saturday 12th August and the prize for all four semi-finalists is a Finals Day place and a place in the history books, especially with the Women’s Challenge Cup Final being held at Wembley for the very first time. It promises to be an occasion to remember.”


York RLFC will be selling tickets for York Valkyrie's Betfred Women's Challenge Cup Semi-Final against St Helens (11.45am) on Saturday 22nd July at Warrington's Halliwell Jones Stadium. Ticket sale details will be confirmed in due course.
