A new season is upon us at last, full of hope and expectation, perhaps more so than ever before, or at least since Super League was first launched back in 1996, given the often controversial structural changes that have been taking place off the field to prepare us all for this moment of rebirth.
The Top 5 playoff is back! London Broncos are back! Big name overseas signings are back! And for the first time in three years, you’ll know who, where and when your team is playing right through to the end of the season.
Add to that some tweaking of the rules designed to speed things up and make the action more entertaining on the field, plus the arrival of the Golden Point to consign the prospect of a dull draw to the dustbin of history, stir in the spectre of automatic relegation for whichever club finishes bottom of the pile after 27 rounds, and drama seems almost certain to follow.
We’ve put together a club-by-club preview for the Betfred Super League, plus the Championship and League 1 too that we hope will whet your appetite even further for what’s to come. We’ve picked out the Star Man at each club, profiled the all-important men at the helm in the coaching hot seat and assessed the ins and outs of a busy off-season of recruitment. There’s a free 36 page Fixture Guide too.
That’s not all as we’ve packed our spectacular season launch issue with loads more great features and big names including Akuila Uate, Lachlan Coote, Joseph Paolo, Kevin Naiqama, Danny Brough and Trent Merrin, plus Luke Menzies who swapped Rugby League for WWE superstardom.
The original architect of Super League, Maurice Lindsay tells us if the competition has lived up to his expectations, Ade Adebisi talks about rebooting Rugby League in Nigeria and we have an extraordinary exclusive story of courage and survival from Iraq that will move you to tears.
