Dewsbury Rams fifth round fixture against Thatto Heath Crusaders is to be shown live on BBC Sport online.
The BBC Sport cameras will focus on the only amateur team remaining in the Coral Challenge Cup Fifth Round when Thatto Heath Crusaders take on the Rams on Sunday, April 14 (KO 3.00pm). The game will take place at Crusaders Park.
The National Conference League Premier Division side have played in all Rounds of this year’s competition, defeating Stanningley, Leigh Miners Rangers and Rochdale Mayfield – a game which was also featured on BBC Sport.
In the last round Thatto Heath produced the shock victory of the competition, as they defeated League 1’s North Wales Crusaders to reach the Fifth Round, a feat not achieved by an amateur club since 2016 when Lock Lane progressed to the same position.
The Rams are no strangers to Challenge Cup victories lifting the famous trophy twice in 1912 and 1943. In Round Four they secured a 32-6 win against NCL side West Hull to progress.
We are looking forward to our visit to Crusader Park to play Thatto Heath.
You can still purchase your Challenge Cup final tickets from the club office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 10am-5pm.
