Super 8s fixtures released

The Super 8s fixtures for 2017 have now been released.

In the Betfred Super League Super 8s, Castleford Tigers currently sit ten points clear at the top of the table and need just three victories to secure the League Leaders’ shield.

Three teams that played in the 2016 Qualifiers, Leeds Rhinos, Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils all make the top eight and with only six points difference between eighth place and third place, it’s all to play for as the countdown to the Betfred Super League Grand Final on Saturday, 7th October at Old Trafford begins.

In The Qualifiers Super 8s, last year’s Grand Finalists Warrington Wolves will battle to retain their Super League status alongside Catalan Dragons, Widnes Vikings and Leigh Centurions, with Hull KR, London Broncos, Halifax RLFC and Featherstone Rovers all hoping to gain promotion.

The Kingstone Press Championship Shield fixtures have been delayed due to operational issues. Round 1 fixtures will now be announced on Thursday 27th July and the remaining fixtures by Monday 31st July at the latest.
