Magic Weekend fixtures confirmed

The fixtures have been confirmed for the 2015 Magic Weekend at St James’ Park in Newcastle.

Five of the six games are a repeat from last season’s event, with the only new fixture seeing Catalan take on Huddersfield, following the departure from Super League of London and Bradford.

It means the heavyweight clashes between Leeds and Wigan, and St Helens and Warrington remain, as well as the Hull derby.

Salford and Widnes will get the weekend underway on Saturday May 30 at 2.30pm, while Castleford and Wakefield round the event off on Sunday May 31 with a 5.30pm kick-off.

All six matches will be televised live on Sky Sports.

Super League General Manager Blake Solly said: “Magic Weekend is long established as one of the sport’s most popular events and from the uniformly positive feedback we have received since announcing that it was heading to St James’ Park, it’s clear that Magic Weekend 2015 will be very special indeed.

“As a top destination city with fantastic travel links and a wide range of accommodation options, Newcastle is an ideal venue for this unique sporting occasion.

“We have worked closely with all the clubs and our broadcast partner Sky Sports to produce a fixture schedule that will ensure that every minute of every match at Magic Weekend matters. And with a comprehensive package of entertainment, both inside and outside the stadium across the whole weekend, I’m sure it will be a truly magical experience for everyone involved.”
