Toulouse Olympique preparing for first look at Super League clubs

TOULOUSE Olympique will get their first taste of the Super League in 2016 when they tackle Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in their Challenge Cup sixth round clash.

Toulouse earned their place in the sixth round alongside the top eight sides from the 2015 Super League season following their 10-8 victory over Championship heavyweights Leigh Centurions in Toulouse on Saturday afternoon.

The match against the Wildcats will be played on May 6-8 at Belle Vue and could potentially be broadcast on BBC Sport with the network to televise two of the weekend’s Challenge Cup matches live.

Holders Leeds Rhinos travel to Super League’s bottom side Huddersfield, while Championship club Dewsbury host 19-time winners Wigan.
