Sky Sports reveal TV picks for penultimate Super League round

Sky Sports will focus on the battle for the Super League play-offs in their televised Round 26 matches.

Two matches will be shown live on Bank Holiday Monday (29 August) in the penultimate set of fixtures, with both likely to have big implications on who makes the top six.

Castleford Tigers’ home clash with Salford Red Devils – currently the sides fifth and seventh in the Super League table – will start a double header (kick-off 3.30pm).

Following that game, Leeds Rhinos – currently sixth – will be screened as they face Catalans Dragons in France (kick-off 6pm UK time).

The round is the second of two over the Bank Holiday weekend, after every team plays between Wednesday (24 August) and Friday (26 August) as well.

Hull FC and Toulouse Olympique are the only sides to play on Sunday 28 August, with every other match in Round 26 played the following day.
