have been drawn against Wigan Warriors in the sixth round of the Challenge Cup.

The Robins overcame the challenge of Bradford Bulls in the last round to keep their Wembley dream alive.

Josh Mantellato scored four of his side’s nine tries in the 50-30 victory away to the Championship outfit, who threatened to produce a major cup upset until Hull KR stepped up the pace in the closing stages.

The reward for their efforts is a trip to the DW Stadium to face the 2013 Challenge Cup winners Wigan in the last 16.

Elsewhere in the draw, cup holders Leeds Rhinos host West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Giants, while York City Knights – the lowest-ranked team left in the competition – face a daunting trip to 12-time winners St Helens.

The ties will be played between 15 and 17 May.
