Sky Sports to show six classic Betfred Championship Summer Bash games

To mark what would have been the weekend of the 2020 Betfred Championship Summer Bash in Blackpool, Sky Sports are showing six classic Bash games in full over this Saturday and Sunday (30/31st May).

With the showpiece event in UK Rugby League's second tier cancelled this year due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, Betfred Championship fans can still get their fix of Rugby League as coverage goes back through the past five years of Bash history, with some absolute belters to look forward to.

It all kicks off on Saturday with the first-ever Summer Bash fixutre between local Cumbrian rivals Whitehaven and Workington from 2015, before London Broncos and Featherstone Rovers' clash from 2017, and then last year's classic between Halifax and Bradford as a Saturday night treat.

Plenty more to come on Sunday too, starting with the Rams and Bulldogs' fixture from 2019, before Sheffield Eagles look for their first Bash win from 2017 against Swinton, with Toronto and Leigh's epic duel from 2018 rounding off the weekend on Sunday afternoon.
