The Super League fixtures were announced only a few hours ago, but already the 2013 season looks to be one of the best yet.
With the top sides getting forever closer, this year sees almost every weekend packed out with at least one top side clash or local derbies to get the mouth-watering.
Champions Leeds Rhinos take on Hull FC on Friday 2nd February to kick the season off, as they look to make it a hat-trick of Grand Final titles this time around.
However on the same weekend, former Huddersfield Giant’s coach Nathan Brown takes on his old boys with new club St Helens in his first game in charge, live on SKY SPORTS.
Wigan Warriors will face Warrington Wolves in Round Two as the boys who won silverware but not the Grand Final look to get their season off to a bang.
Other key clashes continue to roll in the opening six weeks, with the Giants taking on the Warriors and then back to back clashes with local rivals Bradford Bulls before a trip to Headingley in Round Six.
The Rhinos face the Warriors in Round Seven, and then face Bradford in Round Nine, while the Catalan Dragons travel to St Helens in Round 12 for the ‘Friday night under the Lights’ tie.
Magic Weekend is on the 25th/26th May and sees the Hull derby as well as the Warriors facing the Rhinos.
