After Hull KR lost to Featherstone Rovers on Friday night and both Leeds Rhinos and Leigh Leopards impressed yesterday, there are five Super League sides in action today.
Huddersfield Giants travel to Dewsbury to take on Bradford Bulls, Castleford Tigers head to Keighley in Jake Webster’s testimonial as former Man of Steel Luke Gale will debut for the Cougars.
Tony Smith’s first game as Hull FC boss is away to Sheffield Eagles. Whilst a young Wigan Warriors side take on Whitehaven away and St Helens’ Reserves host Swinton Lions.
Bradford Bulls vs Huddersfield Giants: 2pm at FLAIR Stadium
Barrow Raiders vs Workington Town: 3pm at Craven Park
Hunslet RLFC vs Halifax Panthers: 3pm at South Leeds Stadium
Keighley Cougars vs Castleford Tigers: 3pm at Cougar Park – Jake Webster testimonial
Oldham vs Widnes Vikings: 3pm at Whitebank Stadium
Sheffield Eagles vs Hull FC: 3pm at Olympic Legacy Park
St Helens Reserves vs Swinton: 3pm at Totally Wicked Stadium
Whitehaven vs Wigan Warriors: 3pm at The Recreation Ground
It’s worth nothing that there is a first of its kind today as Sheffield Eagles set to host Hull FC in a triple-header.
The club’s wheelchair sides kick off at 10am, the women’s teams face-off at 12.30pm and then the men will get underway alongside the other 3pm games.
As a result fans will be able to attend all three games if they want to with the fixtures being played at Forge Valley for the wheelchair fixture and then the Olympic Legacy Park for both the women’s and men’s games.
That’s the run-down of all the Super League, Championship and League One sides in action but there is more rugby league this weekend and it comes on Saturday with the BARLA Cup which is the British Amateur Rugby League Asscoation.
Whilst all the teams in action are amateur there will be some familiar names in the round one fixtures, particularly for those who caught the Challenge Cup draw on Thursday.
First name out of the hat for the Challenge Cup, Fryston Warriors will travel to face Haresfinch whilst Challenge Cup debutants, Westgate Common will also feature with an away tie against Siddal.
A full list of BARLA cup games can be found on the competition’s website here in case you’ve got a thirst for some local amateur rugby league prior to Sunday’s slate of fixtures.
