Wigan-Warrington rematch headlines Magic Weekend


A Grand Final rematch between Super League winners Wigan Warriors and their vanquished opponents Warrington Wolves will headline the 2017 Magic Weekend.

Newcastle's St James' Park is due to stage the showpiece fixture bonanza for a third year in succession, starting with Widnes Vikings against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Saturday May 20.

Hull will then go up against St Helens, followed by Warrington's opportunity to avenge the 12-6 defeat they suffered at Old Trafford earlier this month.

In the first match on Sunday, Catalans Dragons take on Huddersfield Giants, before a clash between Leigh Centurions and Salford Red Devils.

The sixth and final game pits Leeds Rhinos against Castleford Tigers.
