Rhinos on the rampage against Hull

Super League champions Leeds lived up to their billing as Challenge Cup favourites with a 48-24 fourth round win away to top-flight rivals Hull on Saturday.

England winger Ryan Hall scored four of the Rhinos' eight tries at the KC Stadium as Leeds, who fell at the first hurdle last season against St Helens, looked to win the knockout competition for the first time since triumphing at the old Wembley 11 years ago.

Meanwhile, Tony Chubb scored two tries as Harlequins beat Wakefield 23-16 in another all-Super League clash.

Wigan proved too strong for Sheffield Eagles, who caused one of the greatest upsets in Challenge Cup history when they beat the Warriors in the 1998 final, 50-34 at Bramall Lane.

In an Anglo-French tie, St Helens overpowered Toulouse 56-16 after their visitors had to endure a 24-hour road and ferry journey caused by the cancellation of their flight due to the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud which has grounded so much European aviation in recent days.

But the ash cloud did put paid to Widnes's match against French side FC Lezignan-Corbieres.

Cup holders Warrington are at home to Featherstone on Sunday.
