This Sunday will see a triple-header of live Rugby League action on the Our League app and Sky Sports courtesy of the Betfred Championship and Women's Super League.
Castleford Tigers vs Leeds Rhinos | Women’s Super League | Our League | Sunday 28th April | 1pm
This Sunday’s triple header of Rugby League action starts at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle as Castleford Tigers welcome the visit of Leeds Rhinos in the Women’s Super League. Both teams head into this weekend’s game having won both of their first two fixtures.
Castleford ran out huge 0-80 winners over York City Knights in Round One before beating 2018 Women’s Super League champions Wigan Warriors, 14-36. Last week, the Tigers also won the HerRL Trophy after travelling to Perpignan and overcoming Déesses Catalanes
in comfortable fashion. Castleford will be looking to maintain their 100% in their first home game of 2019.
Leeds began their campaign with a dominant 58-4 win against Wakefield Trinity before battling past Featherstone Rovers, 16-24, a fortnight ago. The Rhinos will be wanting to cement their place at the top of the table with a victory over Castleford.
Will it be Leeds or Castleford who climb to the top?
Sheffield Eagles vs Halifax RLFC | Betfred Championship | Our League | Sunday 28th April | 3pm
It’s Betfred Championship action in the middle of the three-game schedule as the in-form Sheffield Eagles host Halifax RLFC, live on Our League.
Sheffield Eagles have been the surprise package this season in the Betfred Championship currently sitting 3rd with eight wins from their opening ten games. The Eagles had a terrific Easter period in which they hammered fellow promotion hopefuls Toulouse Olympique before comfortably dispatching of Rochdale Hornets on Monday. Sheffield will be hoping to continue their Championship charge this weekend.
It’s been a mixed bag for Halifax so far this season as they sit in 8th place. Fax’ managed to cause a big Coral Challenge Cup upset against Super League side London Broncos but it didn’t give them the boost they’d have hoped for losing consecutive games over Easter at home to Bradford Bulls and then on the road to Toulouse Olympique.
Will Sheffield maintain their form, or can Halifax turn the corner?
Toronto Wolfpack vs Swinton Lions | Betfred Championship | Sky Sports | Sunday 28th April | 7pm
In the final of the three games on Sunday we’re over in Canada as the Betfred Championship front runners Toronto Wolfpack host Swinton Lions in their first game back across the pond in 2019.
The Wolfpack have been in exceptional form this season winning ten of their opening 11 Betfred Championship fixtures meaning they lead both Toulouse Olympique and Sheffield Eagles by four points. It was two from two over the Easter period for the Candian outfit as they overcame Barrow Raiders in a high-scoring affair before getting past Featherstone Rovers at the LD Nutrition Stadium.
Swinton have had a tougher start to the season, but they won their second league game of the year in their opening Easter fixture beating local rivals Rochdale Hornets 36-22. However, their turn of fortunes didn’t last long as they fell to defeat at Batley Bulldogs on Easter Monday. The Lions will be hoping they can catch the Wolfpack off-guard and climb further up the Betfred Championship table.
Will Toronto return to Canada in style or can Swinton cause a huge upset?
