Fresh look to Magic Weekend line-up


Super League champions Leeds take on Wigan and Warrington face St Helens in two mouth-watering encounters at the 2013 Magic Weekend.

Once again to be held at the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City football club, this year it features a mix of derbies and arch rivalries, to take place on the Bank Holiday weekend of May 25-26.

It opens at noon on Saturday with Catalan Dragons versus London Broncos before local rivals Bradford Bulls and Huddersfield Giants go head to head from 2.15.

Bragging rights will be no more valuable than in the third match on Saturday, the Hull derby between Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers who face each other in a 4.30 start before St Helens and Warrington Wolves provide a final flourish from 6.45.

The Sunday Magic gets underway at 3.00 with Salford City Reds versus Widnes Vikings and continues with the West Yorkshire derby, Castleford Tigers v Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at 5.15.

A memorable weekend will reach a crescendo from with the battle between Grand Final winners Leeds Rhinos and 2012 League Leaders Wigan Warriors, who brings proceedings to a close from 7.30.
