Having previously faced Hull KR, London, Huddersfield, Castleford and Saints during the event’s 13 year history, Richard Agar’s Leeds side will prove new and tough opposition for Brett Hodgson’s men who will be looking to continue their fine form at the North-East’s iconic venue having won three of their four clashes there.

Two of the sides that historically take the largest amount of fans to Rugby League’s annual festival weekend, the historic rivalry between Yorkshire’s two biggest sides is sure to be reignited when the sides go head to head on Tyneside.

Elsewhere, reigning Betfred Super League Champions St Helens will take on Catalans ahead of Hull’s clash, while Wigan and Warrington will meet up in Sunday’s headline clash.

Fixtures have been reformatted from those planned in 2020 to include newly promoted Leigh Centurions, while ensuring all teams play on the same day they were scheduled to play on last year, acknowledging those fans who have already purchased tickets; teams will play the side who finished closest to them in last season’s league table.
