The best Rugby League competition in Europe is set to get underway with 12 teams looking for a place in October’s Grand Final. Entering the 2021 season St Helens are the defending champs for the seventh time in their history. The Saints will get their campaign for an eighth title underway from March 12th, but standing in their way are several improved sides in the shape of Wigan, Warrington and new boys Leigh. Find out how to watch games live right here.
2021 Super League TV Preview
The excitement that surrounded the Toronto Wolfpack entering Super League in 2020, with a line up that included a certain Sonny B. Williams, was quickly dampened due to that C-word. The pandemic left the Canadian team bankrupt and the Super League finished with only 11 teams.
Move forward to 2021 and that place has been taken by Leigh, a choice that has left those hoping that Super League would further globalise the game feeling a little short-changed. But with such uncertain times, a club from the league’s North-West English heartlands was probably seen as a safer bet in terms of finishing the season.
St Helens and Wigan are set to renew their battle for glory this year, with the former looking for a third straight title. Other teams in the mix for an appearance in the Grand Final on 10th of October include Hull, Warrington and Leeds Rhinos.
