Another brilliant weekend of rugby league is in the books following last night’s clash between Featherstone Rovers and Bradford Bulls, but there’s another whole week of fixtures to look forward to.
The NRL heads into week two after a brilliant first round of games, Super League kicks onto week four and the Challenge Cup returns as well.
Thursday 9th March
Penrith Panthers vs South Sydney Rabbitohs: 9:05am on Sky Sports Action
Wigan Warriors vs Catalans Dragons: 8:00pm on Sky Sports Arena
Thursday morning kicks off the rugby league viewing this week and two of the favourites for the Grand Final face each other in the NRL, with Penrith looking to bounce back against the Rabbitohs. The evening action sees a Wigan side that’s on the back of a 60-0 and 36-0 win against a Catalans side that’s won three from three.
Friday 10th March
Parramatta Eels vs Cronulla Sharks: 7:00am on Sky Sports Arena
Brisbane Broncos vs North Queensland Cowboys: 9:05am on Sky Sports Arena
Huddersfield Giants vs Castleford Tigers: 8:00pm on Sky Sports Arena
Friday sees us treated to two NRL fixtures with the first seeing the Eels and Sharks look to get their first win, whilst the latter sees Herbie Farnworth’s Broncos aiming for a second straight win when they host the Cowboys. Action from England comes from the John Smiths Stadium with the Giants hosting a Castleford side without a head coach and on a three game losing streak.
Saturday 11th March
Melbourne Storm vs Canterbury Bulldogs: 8:35am on Sky Sports Arena
There’s only one fixture to look forward to on English TV on Saturday and it sees the Melbourne Storm hosting the Canterbury Bulldogs. The Storm will be looking to build on a win whilst the Bulldogs suffered the heaviest defeat of round one, 31-6 at the hands of Manly, and will aim to respond.
Sunday 12th March
Thatto Heath Crusaders vs North Wales Crusaders: 12:30pm on BBC iPlayer and Red Button
Featherstone Rovers vs Halifax Panthers: 3:00pm on The Sportsman Rugby League Youtube channel
Sunday sees the televised Challenge Cup fixtures and we get two games back to back, albeit on separate broadcasters. The first sees the battle of the Crusaders on the BBC with amateur side Thatto Heath hosting League One North Wales. The later fixture will be streamed free on Youtube and features the Championship favourites Featherstone hosting playoff hopefuls Halifax.
