What’s the John Dory? (What’s the gossip)

Aussie Man and Van are once again the main sponsors for the SW London Chargers, who are back again in pursuit of the Challenge Cup.

The draw for the first round of the 2015 Ladbroke’s Challenge Cup took place on Thursday afternoon in the dressing rooms at the iconic Wembley Stadium. The home teams were drawn by four-times Challenge Cup winner, Martin Offiah MBE. The away teams were drawn by Brian Noble, former coach of 2003 Challenge Cup winners Bradford Bulls.

Forty clubs drawn from the community game, Armed Forces, police and University Rugby League, will begin the famous journey in pursuit of Rugby League’s oldest and most prestigious trophy over the weekend of January 31 and February 1.

The final will be held at Wembley Stadium on Saturday August 29, 120 years to the day since Rugby League was founded at a meeting at the George Hotel in Huddersfield in 1895.

Aussie wish the Chargers a bucket-load of luck as they play away at the North West Champions, Widnes West Bank on 31st January.
