KEIGHLEY Cougars face a tricky Challenge Cup second round tie, having been drawn away at League 1 rivals Hunslet.

The game will be Keighley's first competitive one of the year, and will take place on the weekend of January 29/30.

Cougars put in a good showing in last season's Challenge Cup, so head coach Rhys Lovegrove will be expecting more of the same this time around.

His side faced a tough clash at Championship side London Broncos last March, and had a depleted squad due to injuries, but only lost 24-10.
