Another huge week of rugby is upon with two rounds of Super League action crammed into five days and for supporters this can only mean one thing: the chance to watch more of the game we love. So, here’s every game you can watch live this week.
19:30 Sky Sports Arena – Warrington Wolves v Wigan Warriors
Two sides with ambitions of Old Trafford get our rugby league feast underway on Wednesday night. A huge game in any season, this battle between Warrington and Wigan takes on extra significance with both looking to cement their play-off standings and finish as high as possible. Many hoped it would feature the long-awaited return of George Williams to Super League. That won’t be the case but there’s still plenty at stake with Wigan looking to avenge their humbling defeat to the Wolves earlier this year.
10:45 Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Mix – Sydney Roosters v Paramatta Eels
Both Sydney and Paramatta will consider themselves overlooked title contenders as the end of the season nears. Sydney have Grand Final experience in their ranks following back-to-back Premierships in 2018 and 2019 whilst Paramatta have been a fixture in the top four all season. Yet both seem to have been written off where Premiership glory is concerned. Both will see this game as a chance to prove their credentials to the rest of the league.
19:30 Sky Sports Arena – Hull FC v Leeds Rhinos
In another huge Super League game, Hull FC host Leeds. Two teams who often bring the best out of each meet once again in what promises to be a brilliant and significant contest. Both teams are in the play-off mix with Hull currently sitting inside the top six whilst Leeds linger just outside of it. Furthermore, the Rhinos come into the game on the back of the Luke Gale saga. Perhaps he’ll have a point to prove after being stripped of the captaincy? Either way it’s an intriguing subplot in an already eye-catching encounter.
8:30 Sky Sports Arena – Newcastle Knights v Canberra Raiders
Ninth takes on eleventh in the NRL this weekend. Both the Knights and the Raiders are in touching distance of the play-offs. Thus, both sides will consider this a must win game which could bring the best out of the two teams.
10:30 Sky Sports Arena – Melbourne Storm v Penrith Panthers
The top two then take centre stage in a Grand Final rematch. Many expect the side who wins this weekend to claim the Minor Premiership at the end of the season. The Storm should go into the contest as favourites whilst Penrith still adjust to playing without the injured Nathan Cleary. This could very well be the Grand Final rehearsal and could tell us that bit more about the two Premiership favourites. No matter what, it should be a brilliant game.
19:00 Sky Sports Arena – Leeds Rhinos v Warrington Wolves
On the back of huge games on Wednesday and Thursday, the Rhinos and the Wolves do battle themselves on Sunday. After taking on Wigan, the Wire will meet the other side to beat them at Old Trafford in the shape of rivals Leeds who defeated them at the Halliwell Jones recently. As for the Rhinos, if they can find a way to win at Hull and then down Warrington at Headingley this week their play-off hopes will be dramatically enhanced.
19:30 Sky Sports Arena – Hull FC v St Helens
After tangoing with eight-time Super League Champions Leeds, the Black and Whites host the other eight-time Super League Champions St Helens on Monday. It could be a watershed week for Hull as they battle with both a play-off rival and the reigning Champions. Hull will be hoping to catch the newly crowned Challenge Cup winners off guard and gain revenge for their semi-final defeat. It should be a great game.
