10:50 Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports Mix – Cronulla Sharks v St George Illawarra Dragons
Friday sees the latest chapter of Cronulla’s rivalry with St George. The Sharks are not having the season they’d have liked dwelling in 14th spot with two wins from 10. Meanwhile, St George have been the surprise package this season and sit sixth after an impressive start to the campaign.
10:30 Sky Sports Arena – Canberra Raiders v Melbourne Storm
The struggling Raiders take on Premiers Melbourne on Saturday morning. Canberra aren’t having the season many expected of them and only just find themselves in the top eight after a slow start. The charges to Josh Papalii, Jack Wighton and Josh Hodgson won’t help their cause against the third placed Champions.
16:55 Sky Sports Arena – Catalans Dragons v St Helens
In arguably the game of the round, Catalans host St Helens in the South of France. Catalans come into the game off the back of victory against Hull as they continue their brilliant start to 2021. The Dragons will pose a legitimate threat to St Helens’ perfect start to the season. It could be a classic.
4:55 Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports Main Event – South Sydney Rabbitohs v Penrith Panthers
Penrith have won 10 from 10 as they make history whilst dominating the league. However, it’s vital that they keep up their form for the rest of the season if they are to end their wait for the Premiership. Souths will be a tough team to beat after a strong start to the season. They sit fourth in the table.
19:00 Sky Sports Arena – Leeds Rhinos v Hull FC
The weekend will be rounded off by a brilliant occasion as 8-time Super League Champions Leeds welcome fans back for the first time since March 2020. The South Stand will once again provide a brilliant atmosphere as the struggling Rhinos look to compound Hull’s misery following defeat to Catalans on Monday.
Despite the return of fans, the OurLeague App will continue to stream games live to season ticket holders unable to attend the games.
