Thursday and Friday coincide with Super League celebrating Black History Round, recognising the contribution black players and coaches have made to rugby league throughout the sport’s history.

Chev Walker and Danny McGuire will be joining the Sky Sports team as guest pundits on Thursday too, while cross-code icon Jason Robinson OBE takes on the same role the following night.

The action moves down under on Sunday morning as the domestic season in Australia reaches its conclusion with Penrith Panthers taking on Melbourne Storm in the NRL Grand Final.

Ahead of that, we will be bringing you live coverage of the NRL Women’s Grand Final as well, as Brisbane Broncos aim to make it three championships in a row against Sydney Roosters.

Super League returns the following night as St Helens face Salford in a repeat of last year’s Grand Final, followed by Leeds going up against Castleford.

Two of the sport’s biggest derbies headline Thursday and Friday’s coverage, with Hull KR and Hull FC battling it out on Thursday evening and Saints tackling Wigan.
