Dacia Magic Weekend: Battle of the Anthems

Dacia Magic Weekend: Battle of the Anthems


During the 2017 Dacia Magic Weekend, Conquer Rio will be playing some of the greatest covers and some of your club’s very own tracks.

After entertaining the crowds at the 2012, 2013 and 2016 Magic Weekends, the Warrington five-piece return for a fourth year at Newcastle in May.

But we need you, the Super League fans, to decide which track from each fixture will be played at half-time in each Magic Weekend game.

Every day for the next six days, on the Betfred Super League twitter page, we will be running a poll to decide what song should be played, so keep an eye and make sure you cast your vote.

The voting schedule is as follows:

WEDNESDAY: Widnes (Twist and Shout - The Beatles) v Wakefield (Hey Jude - The Beatles)

THURSDAY: Hull FC (Seven Nation Army - The White STripes) v St Helens (Annie's Song - John Denver)

FRIDAY: Wigan (Country Roads - John Denver) v Warrington (Waterfalls - Stone Roses)

SATURDAY: Catalans (Hells Bells - AC/DC) v Huddersfield (Thunderstruck AC/DC)

SUNDAY: Leigh (Hi Ho Silver Lining - Jeff Beck) v Salford (Bad (Red) Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival)

MONDAY: Castleford (Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond) v Leeds (Tubthumping - Chumbawumba)
