The Sportsman will be at Derwent Park on Sunday 19 March to live stream the Betfred League One clash between promotion hopefuls Workington Town and Dewsbury Rams.
Both sides have enjoyed convincing early-season victories: Town 58-16 at London Skolars; the visitors 38-18 at North Wales Crusaders and 50-10 at home to Midlands Hurricanes.
And both clubs are keen for a return to the Betfred Championship following relegation in 2022. Just six points separated the two sides in the corresponding fixture last year, which Dewsbury won 22-16, and another close encounter is expected for what is Town’s first home game of the season.
Rugby League fans can catch all the action – live, free and exclusively – on The Sportsman Rugby League YouTube channel from 3pm on Sunday 19 March.
Before then, both clubs are in Betfred Challenge Cup action against League One counterparts this Sunday (12 March) – Dewsbury Rams entertaining Rochdale Hornets and Workington Town visiting Doncaster.
