The Saints were rewarded for an impressive 36-0 win against local rivals Wigan Warriors in the quarter finals with another home tie in the last four, against holders Leeds Rhinos.
The Rhinos underlined their determination to retain the trophy with an emphatic 74-0 win against Warrington Wolves of the Women’s Rugby League Championship.
Castleford Tigers, who are having an outstanding season at the top of the Women’s Super League and attracted a record crowd of 1,492 for their 48-8 Challenge Cup quarter final victory over Bradford Bulls, have been drawn away at local rivals Wakefield Trinity.
Both semi finals will be played on Sunday July 7, with one of them shown live on the RFL’s Our League platforms, with the winners earning places in the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup Final at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday July 27 – which will kick off a triple header also including the men’s Coral Challenge Cup semi finals (Hull FC v Warrington Wolves, and Halifax v St Helens).
The semi final draw was conducted live on BBC Radio Leeds by two trailblazers in the development of the women’s game over the last two decades – Featherstone Rovers Ladies captain Andrea Dobson, who recently announced her retirement from representative rugby, and former referee Julia Lee.
