LEEDS RHINOS will face Super League champions Wigan Warriors in the final match on the opening day of this year’s Super League Magic Weekend at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium.
Castleford Tigers and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats will kick-off day two when they clash in the opening Sunday match.
Rhinos’ set-to with Wigan, on Saturday, May 17 (7.15pm) is a repeat of last year’s fixture, which saw Leeds lose their unbeaten Magic Weekend record when Warriors squeezed to a 20-16 success.
Having closed the event last year the two giants will bring the curtain down on day one this term when they take part in Saturday’s fourth match.
The blockbuster fixture means Rhinos and Wigan will square off twice in 16 days, with Rhinos due to host Warriors on Friday, May 2.
Wildcats will be looking for revenge the following lunchtime, after being humbled 49-24 by Tigers in 2013.
This year’s matches are all a repeat of the 2013 fixtures and will also see London Broncos take on Catalan Dragons in the event’s opening game (12.30pm).
That fixture is followed by Widnes Vikings’ showdown with Salford Red Devils (2.45pm), before a derby meeting between Hull and Hull KR.
The two other Sunday matches see Huddersfield Giants play Bradford Bulls (5pm)
before the event rounds off with Warrington Wolves facing St Helens.
