Cup holders Leeds host West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield and Wigan face Hull KR in all-Super League ties.

Warrington travel to Championship side Dewsbury Rams while Leigh Centurions have been rewarded for knocking out Salford with a trip to Wakefield.

The ties will be played between 15 and 17 May.
