Socially distanced Super League Show returns to the BBC

Returning to BBC One every Monday evening (Yorkshire, East Yorkshire & Lincolnshire, North East & Cumbria and North West), the Super League Show will bring fans all the latest action following the resumption of rugby league’s Super League.

Each edition of the Super League Show will also be repeated nationally on BBC Two on Tuesdays.

The BBC will provide coverage of every round between now and the end of the season in mid-November. Some extra programmes will air in October and November during weeks with two rounds.

Produced by Manchester-based independent company PDI, Super League Show will be presented by the BBC’s Tanya Arnold.

Arnold said: “I’ve missed rugby league so much during the last few months, so I am delighted to be back with all the highlights for the rest of the Super League season.

“We have some great guests lined up so do join me on BBC One, BBC Two and BBC iPlayer.”

Executive producer Nicola Addyman said: “Everyone who works on the Super League Show is absolutely delighted that professional rugby league is back.

“We can’t wait to bring sports fans all the highlights, news and club gossip throughout the rest of the season.

“Our presenter and number one rugby league fan, Tanya Arnold, will be introducing highlights from every game and chatting to players, coaches and expert pundits throughout the series.”

Because of limits on the number of staff allowed in BBC buildings, the programme, which is usually filmed in the BBC’s Leeds studios, is to be recorded mainly on location at stadiums throughout the season.

With the opening two weekends hosted at Headingley, the BBC has liaised directly with the RFL, the Super League and Sky Sports in order to settle on a safe and workable broadcast plan. Advance stadium visits, as well as COVID risk assessments, are carried out in order to ensure safety requirements are met.

Watch NRL and live stream every NRL game to keep up with how Tom Burgess, John Bateman, Ryan Sutton, Elliott Whitehead, Luke Thompson and George Williams and all the others are getting on Down Under.
