Castleford Tigers will be aiming for history to repeat itself after being drawn away to Wigan Warriors in the quarter-finals of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

Daryl Powell’s men beat Wigan at their DW Stadium at the same stage on route to the final two years ago and will have to do it again if they are to keep their Wembley dream alive in 2016.

The tie is due to take place over the weekend of June 24-26 with all of the quarter-finals to be televised live, two on Sky and two on BBC.

Castleford reached the last eight with a strong display as they defied injuries to key players to beat Salford Red Devils 32-18 while Wigan made it through comfortably with a 54-4 win at Dewsbury Rams.

The full draw is:

Hull FC v Catalans Dragons

Wigan Warriors v Castleford Tigers

Warrington Wolves v Widnes Vikings

Huddersfield Giants v Wakefield Wildcats
