One of the finer beauties about Rugby League is that it never, ever disappoints.
Over the past seven days we’ve witnessed the thrills and spills that have become accustomed with this wonderful game. The repercussions are bluntly transparent this week, particularly for those sides attempting to escape and chase a spot in the middle eights from Super League and the Kingstone Press Championship respectively.
We could fill our mammoth 40-page paper with the action on the field alone, but a week of unbelievable developments off the field means that you’re in for an absolute treat this week.
Any Rugby League lover shouldn’t think twice about getting a copy of League Express. But if you need convincing, here are seven examples that will have you running to your nearest store.
- One round of Super League fixtures is enough to get the heart racing, but this week we witnessed EIGHT Super League games that could all have huge ramifications on the outlook of the league by the end of the season.
We have the best coverage of all the matches, including the lowdown on Wakefield’s first Super League victory in 136 days.
- It has been an equally pulsating week in the Kingstone Press Championship, with Featherstone regaining and then relinquishing their hold of fourth spot in the space of five days. We’ve dedicated more than six pages to another thrilling week in the Championship.
- The most sensational story of last week came from Humberside. It’s hardly a secret that the fans of Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers aren’t particularly fond of each other. So can you imagine their horror when the two clubs announced plans to merge their academies? We have all the details on this controversial story.
- Kevin Locke’s eagerly anticipated debut for Wakefield produced instant results last week as he put in an impressive display for the Wildcats, but is he willing to stay? We’ve got an extensive interview with Wakefield’s new fan favourite.
- What a great week for Leeds Rhinos. If their victory over St Helens wasn’t enough, the news that Zak Hardaker will stay with the league leaders until 2019 will have delighted the Rhinos faithful. League Express has an in-depth interview with the England star.
- The latest England shirt was modelled for the first time last week, and we could be seeing Australian winger Justin Carney wear the jersey soon. The Castleford man has been spilling the beans.
- Our paper wouldn’t be the same without the World Famous Mailbag. The letters are as passionate as ever this week, so there’s plenty of debate in the paper, ranging from the dates of the Challenge Cup semi-finals to the ongoing arguments about Leigh Centurions.
