Egremont Rangers are the only west Cumbrian outfit to land a home draw in the second round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup.
The draw was made yesterday afternoon on board HMS Illustrious and saw the Conference League Division One outfit drawn against Premier Division side Ince Rose Bridge.
Wath Brow Hornets will make their entrance into the competition at this stage and face a trip to take on the 2011 Rugby League Conference National champions Huddersfield Underbank Rangers.
The Huddersfield side have already had success against Cumbrian opposition in this competition this season, having disposed of Seaton Rangers in the preliminary round.
Kells are the third local side still to have a presence in the cup and they will head to NCL Premier Division side Hull Dockers.
All the second-round ties will be played on the weekend of March 10 and 11.
