Rhinos men's and women's teams will both visit Saints on Thursday, June 23.

The men's Betfred Super League round 16 match had already been confirmed as a Sky TV fixture, with an 8pm kick-off, but the broadcaster announced today (Monday) it will also provide live coverage of the women's game, kicking off at 5.30pm.

That will be a repeat of last Saturday's Betfred Women's Challenge Cup final, when Saints won 18-8 and the 2021 Super League title decider in which Rhinos were beaten 28-0.
