Super League and Championship games return this week following a break for the Challenge Cup and their return brings some brilliant action to the television.
This week sees a wide variety of games with Super League, NRL, Championship and also women’s Super League games featuring with nine in total across three platforms.
Thursday 25th May
The Dolphins vs St George Illawarra Dragons: 10:50am on Sky Sports Arena
Hull KR vs Wigan Warriors: 8:00pm on Sky Sports Arena
The week kicks off with Wayne Bennett’s Dolphins down under looking to bounce back from defeat against St George Illawarra. It pits perhaps the most experienced coach in the NRL versus one of the least, with former Featherstone Rovers boss Ryan Carr taking charge of his second game.
Super League returns in the evening with the action taking us to Craven Park in a repeat of the round one game between Hull KR and Wigan Warriors. The home side came out on top that day but both sides enter this game sat 3rd and 2nd, coming off Challenge Cup victories and Super League losses.
Friday 26th May
Leeds Rhinos vs St Helens: 5:30pm on Sky Sports Arena
Leeds Rhinos vs St Helens: 8:00pm on Sky Sports Arena
Friday night sees a double header of the women’s and men’s Super League with the women kicking off at 5.30pm before the men take to the field for 8:00pm. England skipper Jodie Cunningham will bring her St Helens side to Headingley, whilst Super League’s most capped man James Roby could return from his rest to face Rohan Smith’s men in what looks set to be a thrilling double-header.

South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Canberra Raiders: 10:35am on Sky Sports Arena
London Broncos vs Toulouse Olympique: 5:15pm on Viaplay Sports 1

Saturday kicks off the weekend right with a double serving of the NRL in the morning before a pair of Championship games in the evening. Brisbane will look to bounce back from defeat to Penrith when they face the Warriors, whilst the Rabbitohs and Raiders face off after both going down in round 12. Prior to that each team had been on six and five game runs respectively.
The evening affairs see the Summer Bash Championship games on TV. Viaplay is once again the place to be as they show London hosting Toulouse, the latter having suffered two away losses on the spin. That’s a warm-up for the main event which sees top of the table Featherstone Rovers take on York Knights, the Summer Bash being held at York’s stadium of course.
