April has been and gone. It was a brilliant month of Super League action that has set the wheels in motion for another fantastic season. But what will May bring? It’s set to be adorned by the return of fans but for those unable to attend the games which matches can they watch on Sky Sports?
Friday 14th May – Leeds Rhinos v Wakefield Trinity
The first Sky game of the month is a basement battle between too local rivals. The Rhinos take on Wakefield for the second time this season in a West Yorkshire derby that could have massive repercussions for both sides. The pair are struggling at the bottom of the league with one win between them. A victory could get them going in the right direction and away from relegation. They served up a cracker in March, will they do so again?
Monday 17th May – Warrington Wolves v Huddersfield Giants
Monday 17th May is set to be the first day Super League clubs can welcome back supporters. Thus, five of the six fixtures in Round Six have been moved to allow the return of fans. Of the five it’s Warrington v Huddersfield set to welcome the Sky crew along with their returning supporters. The Wolves have turned the corner in recent weeks and now have Greg Inglis at their disposal. The Giants meanwhile struggled to get going at the start of the year but claimed a dramatic one point win over Leeds last time out which should get them climbing the table again.
Saturday 22nd May – Catalans v St Helens
Both Catalans and St Helens have had magnificent starts to the season meaning this should be a classic in the making. The Dragons are notoriously hard to beat at home adding an extra layer of intrigue to the battle as they take on the reigning and presently undefeated Champions in a rematch of last year’s Super League semi-final.
Sunday 23rd May – Leeds Rhinos v Hull FC
For the first time since March, the South Stand at Headingley will once again be rocking for the visit of Hull but will it be enough to propel the Rhinos to an unlikely victory against the Black and Whites who have impressed so far this season? Leeds-Hull games are never dull and this one should be no different.
Thursday 27th May – Salford Red Devils v Warrington Wolves
In Round Eight a Lancashire derby is set to hit our screens as two former Grand Finalists do battle. Salford have had a difficult start to life under Richard Marshall but still have plenty of quality. Enough quality to test the Wolves that much is for sure. However, as the Wire gun for the top of the table again they’ll be very hard to beat.
Friday 28th May – St Helens v Hull FC
This could be one of the games of the season. The Champions taking on a side who have all the makings of a team who could make it to Old Trafford at the end of the season. St Helens have done what most expected of them this year and continue to win games even when not at their best. Meanwhile, Hull look like a different animal in 2021. Both sides will surely bring the best out of one another.
Saturday 29th May – Catalans v Wigan
The final Sky game of the month sees Catalans take on another of Super League’s top teams in the shape of last year’s beaten Grand Finalists Wigan. At the moment the Warriors are unbeaten but a trip to the south of France is always tough. This could be a scintillating contest.
