Leed Rhinos take on Crusaders in the only all-Super League tie in the fourth round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.

Full fourth-round draw: St Helens v Sheffield Eagles York v Hull KR Featherstone v Lezignan London Skolars v Widnes Leigh v Catalan Dragons Wigan v Barrow Leeds v Crusaders Batley v Huddersfield Dewsbury v Swinton Halifax v Bradford Hunslet v Salford Rochdale v Castleford Gateshead v Harlequins Warrington v Keighley Hull v Oldham Doncaster v Wakefield

The Rhinos, last year's beaten finalists whose last cup success was in 1999, will have home advantage against Iestyn Harris' team on the weekend of May 7-8.

"It's a big advantage if you can play in such a big game at home," said Leeds coach Brian McDermott.

"Crusaders are a useful team and they'll be fancying their chances. We're going to get ready for a hard battle."

Minnows

The other 13 Super League clubs have all been paired with Championship opponents.

Holders Warrington, who have not lost a Challenge Cup tie since May 2008 when they went down 40-34 in the fifth round at St Helens, will begin their defence of the trophy against Championship 1 club Keighley.

With home advantage the Wolves will be overwhelming favourites to extend their winning run, but coach Tony Smith insists he will not be taking the part-timers for granted.

"It's a good draw," said Smith. "It's good to be at home. You don't want to take anybody lightly and we certainly won't.

"Obviously it could have been a lot tougher but you've got to be on your game."

Reunion

Super League champions Wigan have been drawn at home to Barrow, a tie that will mean a reunion for the Raiders' new coach Nigel Wright, a former Wigan player.

"We're looking forward to it," said Wigan coach Michael Maguire.

"Our players are keen to do well in the competition and we're very happy with a home tie."

Early Championship leaders Leigh will fancy their chances of springing an upset against Catalan Dragons, while the other French club in the last 32, domestic champions Lezignan, face a difficult trip to Featherstone.

There will also be a west Yorkshire derby between Halifax and Bradford.
