Scotland captain Chris Cusiter has urged the nation’s rugby fans to sample the Super League’s Magic Weekend when it returns to Murrayfield next month because he believes the event will provide top-class entertainment.
Cusiter says he was bowled over by the sheer razzmatazz of Super League action and admits he will be watching the Dragons when they visit the home of Scottish Rugby.
Cusiter said: “I will definitely watch it when it comes up to Murrayfield, it is a really fast game and there are always lots of tries, so that makes it exciting to watch.
“There are also a lot of big hits and big ball carriers. As a game, rugby league is quite easy to understand and straightforward.
A phenomenal 48 hours is in store for sports fans at Murrayfield over Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 May with seven Engage Super League games being staged at a great value price.
On Saturday, Bradford Bulls – one of the most successful teams in rugby league – kick off the action with a match against Crusaders, who have recently signed former Lions and Wales captain Gareth Thomas.
On Sunday, Super League giants Wigan take on the Giants of Super League, Huddersfield while St Helens face Hull KR and Cusiter’s favourites the Dragons take on Castleford – the hometown team of Scotland defence coach Graham Steadman.
