Super League games pushed forward to accommodate pub closures

Super League has pushed forward the kick-off times of two of its games due to the earlier closure of pubs.

The government have forced pubs to shut by 10PM, which has prompted the amendments to ensure fans can see matches in their entirety.

Salford Red Devils and Warrington Wolves will now kick-off at 530pm, followed by Wigan Warriors-St Helens derby at 7.45pm.

The rest of next week’s games have been unaffected.

Tuesday 29 September (AJ Bell Stadium)
Salford Red Devils v Warrington Wolves (5.30pm – live on Sky Sports)

Wigan Warriors v St Helens (7.45pm – live on Sky Sports)

Wednesday 30 September
Huddersfield Giants v Hull KR (5.30pm, John Smith’s Stadium)

Leeds Rhinos v Catalans Dragons (6pm, Emerald Headingley)

Thursday 1 October
Castleford Tigers v Hull FC (7.45pm, Mend-a-Hose Jungle – live on Sky Sports)
