SEAN O'Loughlin is delighted Wigan are coming home in the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

The Warriors have been handed a plum tie in front of their own fans against Harlequins after their superb 22-18 victory at Leeds last weekend.

The 17-time winners, who won the competition eight times in a row between 1988-95, are now one of the favourites to reach the first final at the new Wembley.

And the 24-year-old captain is happy to be back at the JJB on June 8 after two tough away draws at Headingley and Widnes in previous rounds.

"I can't remember when the last one (home draw) was," said O'Loughlin, whose side travel to Harlequins the week before in Super League in a dress rehearsal for the last-eight clash.

"It certainly could have been worse because if we'd been drawn away, it would have meant two long trips to London and back in the space of a few days which would have made it very hard."

The Great Britain ace added: "We knew there were eight Super League teams going into the hat so it was always going to be tough.

"Harlequins are going to be up for this one just as much as we are, and the Super League game the week before is now going to be a very interesting encounter indeed."
