FINISHING the Coral Challenge Cup is part of Super League's plans for the season's restart, reports have said, which could see York City Knights' clash with Castleford Tigers go ahead.

Super League are hopeful of resuming their season in August behind-closed-doors and have set an ambitious target of October for fans to attend matches, PA Sport reports.

The top-flight division has seen its matches suspended since March as part of the lockdown measures brought in as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought sport around the country to a standstill.

Super League have set out three plans for the sport's return, each with a version that would see the Grand Final be played.

This would see the showpiece be played either in November, December or January respectively.

The plans are due to be formally submitted for consideration by the Rugby Football League (RFL) next week.

Concluding the 2020 Challenge Cup is part of Super League's plans, BBC Sport have said, a move which would affect five clubs outside the top flight - Newcastle Thunder, Sheffield Eagles, Widnes Vikings, Featherstone Rovers and York.

The Knights dispatched Rochdale Hornets and London Broncos to secure their home tie against Super League giants and dual-registration partners Castleford.

However such plans remain unclear as, earlier this week, reports in the trade press stated that the majority of clubs in the Championship and League 1 did not wish to restart the season behind-closed-doors.

Their fears were said to concern the lack of matchday revenue able should supporters not be allowed in the ground as well as the cost of testing for Covid-19.
