Pre-season Rugby League fixtures and results

Pre-season is well underway and the friendlies have begun as Rugby League stars brush off the dust and get back into action.

As traditional, Boxing Day heralded the beginning of the schedule, though only one of three planned matches were able to go ahead due to the weather and Covid.

Teams will be hoping for better luck through January as Super League and Championship sides get serious ahead of the start of their campaigns, while a few League 1 teams are also in action before the Challenge Cup begins.

Here are all the pre-season friendlies that have been confirmed…
