After another wonderful weekend of live rugby, we’re ready for more superb Super League and NRL action to hit our screens this week.
Super League Round 4 is upon us and it promises to be one of the best of the season so far with so many big games.
Add to that the brilliance of the NRL and you have a weekend full of brilliant rugby to stick your teeth into.
19:00 Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports Mix – Huddersfield Giants v St Helens
For the second week in a row Huddersfield will light up our screens. Last time out the Giants were just edged by Hull KR after a slow start to the game which saw them conceded Super League’s fastest ever try. The Giants have flattered to deceive so far this season and are yet to record a league win despite all the hype surrounding them going into the new campaign. They take on the Champions, who so far have a flawless record, in what should be a brilliant match.
19:30 Sky Sports Arena – Hull FC v Wakefield Trinity
Not to be out done by their city-rivals, Hull FC also made history last week as they played in the first Super League draw since 2018 and the introduction of golden point as they maintained their unbeaten record in a titanic battle with Warrington. They’ll be taking on a dogged Wakefield side who kept St Helens scoreless in the first half last week. Trinity are desperate for a first win of the season and will be looking to cause the upset.
8:25 Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports Mix – Cronulla Sharks v Canterbury Bulldogs
Despite playing in three Grand Finals between them over the last decade, neither the Sharks nor the Bulldogs have had ideal starts to 2021. Canterbury sit bottom of the league and await their first win whilst Cronulla sit 11th with just two wins to their name. As they both look to claim vital league points this should evolve into quite the contest.
10:30 Sky Sports Arena – North Queensland Cowboys v Canberra Raiders
As with Cronulla and Canterbury, things haven’t gone according to plan for North Queensland Cowboys. They sit 13th in the league with just a pair of wins to their name. However, they still offer a lot of quality and could test a Canberra side who dropped out of the coveted top 8 last week. They’ll be hurting and desperate for the win.
16:55 Sky Sports Arena – Catalans Dragons v Warrington Wolves
For the second week in a row Catalans are at home and on Sky in one of the biggest games of the weekend as two teams expected to challenge for honours this year go toe-to-toe in a repeat of the 2018 Challenge Cup Final. The Dragons have a 100% start to their name but face their biggest test of the year so far against a Warrington side who have been a mixed bag so far this season.
9:10 Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Arena – Melbourne Storm v New Zealand Warriors
Rounding off a brilliant weekend of ruby is a battle between two of the NRL’s early top 8 as Premiers Melbourne take on the New Zealand Warriors. After a pair of early setbacks this season, the Storm have adjusted well to life after Cameron Smith but face a stern test against the Warriors.
