It's a big weekend for rugby league fans in Cumbria, with three of our sides in action in the 4th round of the Challenge Cup.

Amateur side, Kells, took on the might of Toronto Wolfpack last night at Whitehaven's Recreation Ground. But despite some excellent defensive play they were eventually well beaten 6-56.

Tomorrow Whitehaven are at home to Dewsbury Rams and Workington Town play host to London Broncos. Both games start at 3pm.
