Toronto Wolfpack’s home fixture against Hull Kingston Rovers will be broadcast through Sky, to British audiences, for the first time ever.
Saturday is set to be an exciting day for Rugby League fans, with five games to be broadcast across three continents and in four countries. The NRL will take centre stage in the morning with Wests Tigers taking on St. George Illawarra Dragons at 8.30am (BST) and Cronulla Sharks facing North Queensland Cowboys at 10.35am (BST).
Focus then turns to the European competition with three games back to back to back.
England is where the action begins with Salford Red Devils hosting Widnes Vikings with a kick off time of 3.15pm (BST). We then move across the channel to southern France where Challenge Cup finalists Catalans Dragons play against Grand Final chasers Wigan Warriors (5.30pm BST). Finally, we will jump across the pond for the first Toronto fixture to be broadcast by Sky, they welcome Hull Kingston Rovers to Canada (7.30pm BST).
These games are in addition to Wakefield Trinity v St. Helens on Thursday night and the crunch game between Castleford Tigers v Warrington Wolves on Friday, with both sides still searching for a home semi-final (both KO 7.45pm BST).
Sky will also broadcast Toronto’s home game vs Championship runners-up London in Round 3 and their away game against Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell Stadium in Round 4.
