It’s one of the biggest weekends of the season even though we’re treated to just five live games.
Why are there so few games? Because taking centre stage is of course the two finals which are set to take place on Saturday.
At the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium, Featherstone and Leigh kick things off in the 1895 Cup Final in a game where not only silverware is up for grabs but grabbing rights and an all-important blow in the race for promotion as the Championship’s two best teams battle. Not only is this game live on Premier Sports but it’ll also be available on BBC iplayer.
Straight after that is one of the biggest games of any season as Wigan and Huddersfield contest for the oldest and most prestigious trophy in rugby league: the Challenge Cup.
It’s been 13 years since the Giants last played in a cup final whilst the Warriors are looking to add to their enviable collection of Challenge Cups with victory over the Giants.
If that’s not enough rugby for you, then three big games from the NRL will wet your appetite. Melbourne on the back of rare back-to-back defeats as they face rivals Manly.
