Every rugby league match you can watch live on TV this week

Last week the Challenge Cup took centre stage, but this week the focus returns to Super League but there is no stoppage in the rugby league action coming to our screens.

As the NRL hots up going into Round Four, and competitors emerge in Super League after six rounds, we’re set to be treated to the biggest games across the world this weekend.

So, here’s every game you can watch live on TV this week.

Thursday:

Wigan Warriors vs Hull FC – Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Arena 19:30

Two sides who booked their place in the last eight of the Challenge Cup and will no doubt be in good spirits meet at the DW Stadium. With just one win separating the two teams after six games as both look like early play-off contenders, this should be an intriguing battle between sides set on silverware in 2022.

Friday:

Penrith Panthers vs South Sydney Rabbitohs – Sky Sports Arena 10:00

In a repeat of last year’s superb NRL Grand Final, Penrith and Souths do battle. Penrith have looked as good as ever to start the season despite some notable absentees. They’re unbeaten and are producing brilliant performances week in and week out. Souths meanwhile have won just once to start the season but that was last week where they produced arguably the performance of the round to crush rivals Sydney. On the back of that, they could really test the Panthers as they look to avenge their narrow Grand Final loss.

Leeds Rhinos vs St Helens – Sky Sports Arena 19:30

Around 10 years ago, this was the biggest game in Super League between two teams expected to get to Old Trafford at the end of the season as they battled to be the best. That’s still true of St Helens, but after one win from their opening seven fixtures in league and cup, the Rhinos are in a hole and a visit from the Champions is the last thing they need. Can legend Jamie Jones-Buchanan get a big performance out of the Rhinos or will St Helens lay down another marker?

Saturday:

North Queensland Cowboys vs Sydney Roosters – Sky Sports Arena 09:30

Two teams on opposite sides of derby results do battle in the NRL this weekend. North Queensland blitzed rivals Brisbane last week whilst the Roosters slipped to a second loss in their first three games at the hands of Souths. Looking for a response, they could turn it on against the Cowboys however, North Queensland will be brimming with confidence and could really test the Roosters.

Sunday:

Parramatta Eels vs St George Illawarra Dragons – Sky Sports Arena 09:10

Parramatta proved that they can hang with the very best teams in the league last week as they defeated reigning Minor Premiers Melbourne in Golden Point. Now they have to back that up against a wounded Dragons side no doubt hurting from a 36-12 defeat to Cronulla last week.

Monday:

Newcastle Thunder vs Widnes Vikings – Premier Sports 1 19:15

Rounding off the week’s action is a Championship battle between Newcastle and Widnes. After starting the season impeccably, the Vikings have slipped down to fourth with two league defeats and a loss in the cup. Meanwhile Newcastle, who went into the season full of promise, have won as many games as they’ve lost but could move level on points with the fourth-placed Vikings with a win here so it’s all to play for on Premier Sports this week.
