Tonight we will see Wigan Warriors and Leigh Leopards go toe to toe in a huge game at the top, Hull KR meet Wakefield Trinity in a crucial game for fourth, Warrington Wolves meet Huddersfield Giants hoping to secure a play off spot and Salford Red Devils are hoping to exploit any hiccup against Catalans Dragons who, alongside St Helens who are playing against Hull FC, are after the League Leaders’ Shield.
Leigh vs Wigan is the main event and so Leigh will be hoping to avoid any floodlight problems.
This has has been highlighted by the club themselves branding the floodlight their man of the match against Huddersfield Giants which is an argument Huddersfield Giants boss Ian Watson suggested at the time.
The Leopards said: “He was our player of the match last week, so here’s hoping for another big performance from Flood Light tonight against the Warriors.”
The Giants responded with an unimpressed emoji.
In addition to full match coverage of this game, Sky will also have cameras and reporters at all fixtures that stand a chance of affecting the shape of the Play-Offs, meaning viewers won’t miss a thing next Friday night.
Meanwhile RL Commercial are making arrangements to ensure the League Leaders’ Shield can be presented to the winners on Friday night – at Leigh, Salford or St Helens.
Rhodri Jones, the Managing Director of RL Commercial, said:
“With only two rounds remaining of this competitive and compelling Betfred Super League season, it is
impossible to predict with confidence exactly what will be at stake in Round 27.
“We are grateful to Sky Sports for making special arrangements which allow all six matches to be played on Friday night, meaning no late switches for supporters who are planning to attend in person, and an action-packed last night for viewers.”
