The weekend’s rugby league closed out tonight with a brilliant Championship matchup between Widnes Vikings and Halifax Panthers, and the coming week has even more to offer.
With the NRL starting it means we’re treated to some rugby league from down under on top of Super League and Championship fixtures.
The action gets underway on Thursday morning and goes right through until Monday evening when the week is rounded off with another brilliant Championship fixture.

Parramatta Eels vs Melbourne Storm: 9:05am on Sky Sports Arena
Warrington Wolves vs Salford Red Devils: 8:00pm on Sky Sports Arena
The NRL season kicks off with last season’s runners-up Parramatta welcoming Melbourne and it serves as a morning game to warm fans up for the evening’s Super League action. That action sees the resurgent Warrington host Salford who are coming off a loss to Hull KR.

The Dolphins vs Sydney Roosters: 5:05am on Sky Sports Arena
Wayne Bennett’s Dolphins get their first ever competitive game underway on Sunday morning and they’re in for a stiff test as they host the Roosters.
