Champions St Helens start their title defence at home to Salford, while new boys Leigh Centurions welcome their neighbours Wigan Warriors for a tasty local derby.

In a delayed season, there will be 25 league matches followed by the Play-off phase, finishing with the Grand Final on Saturday October 9th.

On Saturday 27th March, there is a double header with Wakefield hosting Leeds in a Yorkshire derby, then Catalans face Hull KR in Perpignan.

New coaches Ian Watson and Brett Hodgson start their careers at Huddersfield and Hull FC and will face off against one another on Sunday 28th March.

Finally, we could see Aussie legend Greg Inglis make his Super League debut for Castleford Tigers as they face Warrington Wolves.

All matches are live and exclusive on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Arena with the Sunday games also on Sky Sports Mix.

Magic Weekend has also been rearranged for the weekend of September 4th due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the hope that some fans will be allowed to attend.
