All six Super League and Challenge Cup games live on TV this week

IT’S been an interesting start to the new season for all three professional tiers of rugby league.

The Championship is now three weeks old with Super League and League One starting at the weekend whilst the NRL pre-season trials are now over as well.

That means that only six games will be broadcast live across the TV this week with Sky Sports, Channel 4, the BBC and ViaPlay all covering games as the Challenge Cup second round kicks off, too.

On Thursday night, unbeaten Salford Red Devils and unbeaten Hull KR go up against each other live on Sky Sports Arena, with Leeds Rhinos and Hull FC doing exactly the same on Friday night.

On Saturday afternoon, BBC iPlayer will show the Challenge Cup Round Two fixture between Cornwall and Rochdale Mayfield with Channel 4 covering Castleford Tigers and St Helens on Sunday.

Later on Sunday afternoon, The Sportsman will be covering the Challenge Cup Round Two game between Hull Dockers and Midlands Hurricanes before ViaPlay hosts Widnes Vikings’ clash with the Halifax Panthers on Monday night.
