Sky Sports will show six retro Magic Weekend matches from over the years this weekend.
The annual event was due to take place at St James’ Park in Newcastle this weekend – but it has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Super League officials hope to stage the event later in the year, and you can use a bonus code 365BETMAX to predict the winners.
As a result, Sky will instead show six classic matches from different Magic Weekends from over the years.
