2009 Challenge Cup - Finals


The Gateshead Thunder entered their first ever Challenge Cup quarterfinal thanks to their victory over the Oldham Roughyeds. The nature of that fixture meant that a Co-operative Championship team was guaranteed to be present in the quarterfinals stage of the tournament. No other Championship team won their respective match against top-flight opposition, and so the rest of the remaining teams at this point were from the Super League. This round contained two Super League teams less than the previous round – the Catalans Dragons, who lost their fifth round tie against the Cup holders St. Helens, and Wakefield, who lost to Wigan.
