“We expect demand for tickets to be extremely strong following the success of the 2015 Series,” said Super League general manager Blake Solly.

“Now that we have ensured the top Super League teams will face the top NRL teams in 2016, it is a weekend that no sports fan will want to miss.”

Leeds pivot Rob Burrow, who has appeared in all six of the Rhinos previous World Club Challenges since 2005, is delighted to have the chance to play against the NRL‘s best players.

“It will be special to be back at Headingley Carnegie and taking on North Queensland,” he said.
