A total of 63,269 passed through the St James’s Park turnstiles, with 36,943 turning up on day one and 26,326 attending the following afternoon.
The event brought delight for Castleford Tigers, who picked up only their third win of the campaign and Hull FC as they shocked high-flying Warrington Wolves.
Leeds Rhinos suffered disappointment in their derby against Tigers and there was more misery for winless Wakefield Trinity. Here are 21 pictures – with every club featured – capturing a flavour of Magic on and off the field.
