Manchester is a great base for something like this.
Direct train lines to most rugby areas including Wigan, Warrington, Leeds, and Huddersfield. Good city centre night life and a lot of places to stay.
For the big game atmosphere any of the recognised derbies Hull, Wigan Saints, Leeds Bradford, Wigan Warrington or you could go cross pennine games, Wigan Leeds, Warrington Leeds, Saints Bradford was at one time a good one but Millward screwed that up.
Other games to watch for are Cas Leeds which tend to have a bit of bite and Saints Warrington which tend to be dramatic.
