The Betfred League 1 season gets underway today as Newcastle Thunder take on Doncaster in #SuperSaturday at Kingston Park.
Hosts Newcastle are much fancied to gain promotion this year after strengthening during the close-season.
Jason Payne has added the likes of Liam Finn from Wakefield Trinity, Misi Taulapapa from Featherstone and Kieran Gill from Castleford to add to what was already a competitive side at League 1 level.
