Championship Fixtures: Former Super League sides to meet in opener

Newly promoted Oldham will start life in the Championship against fellow former Super League club London Broncos.

The Roughyeds are yet to confirm where they will play their home games in 2016, though they are in talks over a possible return to Boundary Park and a ground-share with the town’s football club.

Bradford, who missed out on promotion back to the top flight when they lost the Million Pound Game against Wakefield earlier this month, open up their 2016 campaign against Featherstone.

Leigh will begin their attempt to win a third successive League Leaders Shield with a visit to Batley.

The other new club in the division, Swinton, open up against Dewsbury.

Each team will play 23 games in the regular season, home and away against the other 11 clubs and following the success of the 2015 Summer Bash, all clubs will return to Bloomfield Road in Blackpool over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 28-29 to play an additional game.
