Find out how some of Super League's former NRL stars fared in the Challenge Cup Quarter-Finals, as one player continued his remarkable form.

Super League’s top two set up a mouthwatering semi-final next month, while the Giants and the Robins set up their own semi-final tussle too.

Hull KR were the first team to book their place in the last four when they saw off Castleford Tigers, 34-10, on Friday night. Former Cowboy, Lachlan Coote, kicked five goals en route to victory.

In Saturday’s first game, St Helens overcame Catalans Dragons, 36-20 in France. The only downside for Saints was the one-match ban picked up by former Manly forward Curtis Sironen for a high tackle, which means he’ll sit out the Good Friday derby with Wigan.
