The 2013 Super League fixtures are out on Monday as the rugby league bandwagon comes back into town.
With last year being one of the best ever, this year’s fixtures have been greeted with even more anticipation.
Champions Leeds Rhinos will be the pick of the draw for everyone, but their will also be great grudge matches between Wigan Warriorsand St Helens and Bradford Bulls V Huddersfield Giants.
The Bulls, who could quite easily have been in a different division, will be looking to start a fresh under new owners and a home tie for the first weekend would be a great way to start it off.
St Helens V Huddersfield Giants will have an added spice as head coach Nathan Brown will go up against his former assistant Paul Anderson. Both coaches have moved quick to stamp their authority on their sides and the date of that game is on the radar for every super league fan.
With so much anticipation around the fixtures, fans for the first time ever will have a chance to find out the opening weekend fixtures on Friday via their clubs twitter feeds.
This innovative idea shows how the RFl are using twitter and social media to enhance the concept of extraordinary rugby.
After Monday, the countdown will begin to the first week of the 2013 season, where everyone will be hoping for great rugby and lots of silverware for their respective clubs at the end of the year.
