Last year produced arguably the most unpredictable Super League season to date; Leeds Rhinos went from top of the tree and winning the treble in 2015 to fighting for their Super League status. In the Grand Final, an injury-hit Wigan defeated Warrington to lift the Grand Final trophy at Old Trafford, and let’s not even mention the drama of the Million Pound Game. So what will Super league XXII bring?
The season starts again tonight with 12 teams hoping to reach the bright lights of Old Trafford at the end of the season – including newly promoted Leigh Centurions.
Champions Wigan Warriors will also have the chance to mix it with the southern hemisphere’s best again, when they take on Cronulla in the World Club Challenge at the DW. Just one of a few intriguing stories that will no doubt unfold over the next eight months when every minute matters.
To help launch the season, Super League used the Northern charm of Johnny Vegas in their promo video. It certainly got us excited about the dramas in the months ahead and all the exciting projects we have planned for Super League sponsor Kingstone Press Cider! We’re a Sports Marketing Agency with real life sports fans inside it – bring on Super League XXII!
