Rugby League legends Des Drummond and Henderson Gill will conduct the draw for the semi-finals of the 2013 Tetley’s Challenge Cup on Sunday (July 14).


Drummond and Gill were two of Rugby League’s celebrated wingers of the 1980s and 1990s when their try-scoring prowess at club and international level made them hugely popular figures.


Gill was twice a winner at Wembley with Wigan, first in the greatest ever Challenge Cup final of 1985, when he scored one try and kicked three goals in a 28-24 victory over Hull FC, and again in 1988, when his try helped Wigan to a 32-12 defeat of Halifax.


Drummond, who gained 24 caps for Great Britain between 1980 and 1988, played in just one Challenge Cup final at Wembley in 1990, when Warrington fell 36-14 to an all-conquering Wigan side.


The draw will take place live on BBC2 following the conclusion of the Warrington Wolves v Huddersfield Giants quarter-final, which kicks off at 4.15.


The semi-finals of the 2013 Tetley’s Challenge Cup will take place on Saturday and Sunday July 27 and 28. Details of venues will be confirmed early next week once the quarter-finals have been completed.


The 2013 Tetley’s Challenge Cup quarter-finals are as follows:


Friday July 12 – Sheffield Eagles v London Broncos (8.00pm, Sky Sports 1)


Saturday July 13 – Catalan Dragons v Hull FC (4.00, BBC2)


Sunday July 14 – Warrington Wolves v Huddersfield Giants (4.15, BBC2)


Monday July 15 – Wigan Warriors v Widnes Vikings (8.00, Sky Sports 1)
