This weekend we’re being treated to a whopping 10 live games largely thanks to the Magic Weekend taking place at St James’ Park.
It’s set to be one of the best Magic Weekends we’ve ever seen with some seismic clashes which could have massive bearings on the complexion of the season and the story unfurling in a great Super League campaign.
It all starts with a clash between Wakefield and Toulouse and a win for the French side against an out of sorts Wakefield side will make a real fist of the relegation scrap trimming the gap between the two down to just two points.
Then to the other end of the table as rivals Wigan and St Helens battle with the Warriors able to draw level with the Saints at the top of the table with a second win of the year against the Champions who lost last week against Catalans.
Then day one concludes with a huge West Yorkshire derby between two play-off hopefuls in Leeds and Castleford. A defeat for Leeds could end their play-off hopes there and then and cement Castleford’s hopes after a great run of recent form.
Then on Sunday Huddersfield look to get back on track against the in form Salford Red Devils prior to a game between Catalans and Warrington. The Dragons will be looking to maintain the momentum started by victory against Saints last week meanwhile Warrington will be hoping to avoid slipping into the relegation scrap.
The weekend concludes with a massive Hull derby between two struggling teams as Hull KR enter the game after parting ways with coach Tony Smith whilst Hull FC enter the fixture after conceding 62 points against Leeds.
That’s where the weekend ends but it also starts in Newcastle as the Thunder take on Bradford after both suffered big defeats against the top teams last week.
Complimenting this buffet is also a side order of NRL action as Cronulla play Melbourne, Wests take on Paramatta and Brisbane play St George.
