Magic Weekend: South West Style

Magic Weekend: South West Style

Rugby League’s South West League kicks off this weekend (Saturday 1 June) with its very own version of Super League’s Magic Weekend.

All six teams featuring in the summer competition will come together at Barnstaple Rugby Club, where Dorset County Giants have a high noon showdown with Teignbridge Trojans and Devon Sharks make a welcome return to league competition. The Sharks take on Saltash Essayons at 4pm, following a mouth-watering clash between local heroes Tarka Storm and Cornish Rebels (KO 2.00pm).

Rugby Football League (RFL) Community Game Competitions Manager, Chris Godfrey, says:

“Last week Liverpool, this week Barnstable. The magic continues!

“We’re delighted to welcome back Devon Sharks and we wish all clubs well not only for Magic Weekend but for the rest of the summer.”

The South West Rugby League (SWRL) is a growing member league of the RFL and runs through the summer. It was previously part of the Rugby League Conference.
