Warrington’s HJ Stadium will stage Wigan’s Challenge Cup semi-final against Salford.

The tie will take place on Sunday, July 30, kick-off 2.30pm.

Hull’s semi-final against Leeds takes place at Doncaster the day before.

Wigan progressed to the last four thanks to a thrilling 27-26 win at Warrington. Salford, second in the Super League ladder, beat Wakefield 30-6 on Thursday night to progress.

Sam Tomkins, summarising for the BBC, admitted he wanted to avoid Salford in the semis in the hope he could play his brother Logan, the Red Devils hooker, at Wembley.
