Re-scheduled Super League clash breaks students’ hearts

Super League coverage

It was announced this week that Sky Sports and RL Commercial have agreed broadcast selections for Rounds 16-18 of Betfred Super League, as the battle for Play-Off places hots up through the summer.

The Round 18 Hull derby at Sewell Group Craven Park had already been confirmed for coverage on Sunday July 9, with a high noon kick-off as Tony Smith’s Black and Whites aim for revenge against the high-flying Robins following their heavy Good Friday defeat at the MKM Stadium.

The Hull clubs will also feature in Sky’s coverage of Rounds 16 and 17.

Hull FC’s Round 16 match against St Helens will now be shown from the MKM Stadium on Thursday June 22, and that will be followed eight days later by a meeting of two of the success stories of the season so far, as Leigh Leopards host Hull KR on Friday June 30.

Leeds Rhinos will feature in both Rounds 16 and 17, at home to Huddersfield Giants on Friday June 23, and away to Warrington Wolves on Thursday June 29.

And the Wolves’ home match against St Helens, always a highlight of the season at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, will be shown on Friday July 7.

The decision to show the Wolves on Sky twice in a row has had some very sad consequences.

The decision to move the Wolves game to June 29th on Sky has meant that a local school’s prom has to be moved.

Cardinal Newman Catholic High School in Warrington have called for help after their Year 11 student were left devastated by the news especially as they deal with their GCSEs.

They said on Twitter:

“Can anyone offer a venue for our Y11 Prom on 29th June as Sky Sports have moved the Warrington Wolves game against Leeds Rhinos to our Prom night.

“We now have no venue and 165 devastated Y11 who start their exams today & now have the prospect no end of year celebration.”
