catalans dragons face journey for last 16 tie in redrawn challenge cup scaled

CATALANS were handed another trip to England as the Challenge Cup finally got back on the rugby league agenda.

The last 16 was plunged into chaos when six teams – including Toronto Wolfpack – withdrew from the tournament.

 Toronto Wolfpack, who had defeated Huddersfield in the last round, withdrew from the rest of the 2020 season

That meant a redraw, with an effective preliminary round ahead of the quarter finals.

And Steve McNamara’s men, who won the trophy in 2018, must fly to face Wakefield in one of those matches.

Castleford will face Hull FC in the other tie, which will form a double header at Huddersfield on August 22.

In the last eight, holders Warrington were paired with Super League champions St Helens in the clash of the round.

Fans have been singing the praises of Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele after his involvement in their equaliser against Southampton.

The French midfielder picked up the ball in the middle of the pitch after showing his strength against Saints hard man Oriel Romeu. 

He then creates space for himself with a perfect piece of skill to get past James Ward-Prowse and get Spurs on the attack.

Ndombele then put the ball through to Harry Kane who set up Son Hueng-min in a fast, flowing move all begun by the Frenchman.

One fan tweeted: ‘That was a world class piece of skill from Ndombele. World class’

Another fan said that the Tottenham midfielder is about to surpass Manchester United’s Paul Pogba in the French set-up following his first half display. 

They tweeted: ‘Ndombele really about to end pogbas international career.’

Despite impressing in the first half of Tottenham’s match against Southampton in the Premier League, Ndombele was dragged off at half-time, minutes after his moment of magic.

He was replaced by Giovani Lo Celso, who has shared the same injury woes as his counterpart in recent months.

There have been question marks over Jose Mourinho’s faith in Ndombele after he made it quite clear last season that he was not in his favoured starting side.

AWESOME AUBA HERE

Martin Keown reckons Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can become an Arsenal legend after the striker finally signed a new contract this week.

And the club’s former centre-back shared his thoughts on what more the Emirates frontman can do to become a Gunners icon.

Keown told talkSPORT: “Aubameyang loves playing there [Arsenal] and he wants to be a legend in the future, so why not?

“He’s 31 years of age and he’s turned down Barcelona by the way to stay there. I think that tells you how much he loves the football club and what he’s looking to achieve.

“If they win the Premier League in the next three years then he certainly will become a legend if he plays a major part in that.”
