Elliot Minchella scored two early tries to help send Hull KR to their first Challenge Cup semi-final in seven years with victory against Castleford Tigers.
Lachlan Coote converted both of Minchella’s efforts before Greg Eden responded with a brace of tries of his own to make it 12-10 at the break.
Ryan Hall added Rovers’ third try early in a physically demanding second half.
Rowan Milnes, Sam Wood and Jordan Abdull tries then completed the win against last season’s beaten finalists.
The Robins are the first side into the semi-final draw, having last reached the final four of the competition in 2015 when they went on to lose the Wembley decider 50-0 to Leeds Rhinos.
