Super League has confirmed that the Super League show will return to BBC screens for the 2022 and 2023 Betfred Super League seasons following the agreement of a new deal between the two parties.
Each season there will be 30 shows covering the 27 regular season rounds of the Betfred Super League and three shows covering the end of season play-offs and Grand Final.
Starting on Monday 14 February, fans can enjoy a 45 minute show packed with highlights and analysis from each round of fixtures as well as the stories from within the game that week.
In a change for 2022, the Super League show will be available via BBC iPlayer from 7pm each Monday before a regional BBC1 airing on Monday night and full national coverage on BBC2 each Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Premier Sports ushered in a new era last night as Featherstone Rovers overcame a stubborn York City Knights side, 30-12.
The new host Emma Jones appeared vibrant, asking new pundits Kevin Brown and Leon Pryce insightful and straight-to-the-point questions whilst St Helens Women’s Jodie Cunningham added another dimension to the line-up.
Commentator Mark Wilson demonstrated just why he is so highly-rated with a smooth and passionate analysis of the game, though pundit Ross Fiddes did find himself on the receiving end of some cracking Brian McDermott comments.
All in all, it was a tremendous success with the views of two recently-retired players offering a great deal to viewers – and the viewers certainly agreed.
