WARRINGTON Wolves will resume the 2020 Super League campaign against Tony Smith’s Hull KR at Emerald Headingley Stadium on Saturday 8 August, 18.30 KO.
The Wire will then face Huddersfield at the Totally Wicked Stadium the following week on Saturday 15 August, 13.00KO.
Triple headers played over two days at Emerald Headingley Stadium and the Totally Wicked Stadium are scheduled for the initial rounds, which ensures greater control over the safety and well-being of players, staff and match officials.
Given the exceptional and demanding financial climate, the opportunity to play in front of home crowds has been ‘front of mind’ in the fixture scheduling.
As a result, from Round 14, the schedule gets busier across the final two months of the 2020 season.
The significance of home crowds to clubs and fans also means that dates and venues in the back end of the campaign will be reviewed as the season progresses, in line with government advice and in discussion with host broadcaster, Sky Sports.
The play-offs – comprising four teams – are scheduled for mid/late-November, while the Grand Final will take place at the end of November.
Testing is now fully up and running and all Super League clubs will be back in training by the end of next week.
There are two significant, well-documented changes that teams will be preparing for – the ‘six-again’ rule will be brought into Super League and matches will be played without scrums, the game being restarted with a tap.
