The wait is finally over – the start of Super League XVI is just one day away. Tomorrow will see Wales’ Capital City transform into Rugby League heaven for the weekend.
Temperatures are high and adrenaline is pumping as the boys complete their team run at Rapid Solicitors Stadium this morning. The final preparations for the Wildcats clash with the Tigers are underway and John Kear and his men will begin their journey to Cardiff at lunch time today.
With the big event upon us, the media spotlight is now trained on the 2011 Engage Super League but there is only one place where fans will find the cream of Rugby League writers coming together – the official Millennium Magic programme.
Many of the leading lights of the national Rugby League press have contributed unique articles for the event publication, with features covering every Engage Super League club. To celebrate the Magic Weekend’s move to its new season launch position, the official RFL event programme comes with a free copy of a 68-page pocket guide to preview the 2011 season, which includes a statistical spotlight on all 14 clubs plus essential supporter information too.
Under the editorship of Sunday Times writer Chris Irvine, the main Millennium Magic programme includes features with Jamie Peacock, Brett Hodgson, Matt Diskin and Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook to name but a few. There’s also Robbie Hunter-Paul’s season preview and club-by-club predictions, plus interviews with Iestyn Harris and Rob Powell – two of six new head coaches at Engage Super Leagues clubs.
With the Millennium Magic fixture list reverting to a local rivalry line-up fans give their views on just what it means to play their fiercest rivals. The official RFL event programme and season pocket guide will be available throughout the Millennium Stadium over the Magic Weekend priced at £5 or by calling 01347 821344.
The Wildcats take on local rivals Castleford Tigers at 5pm on Saturday in what is set to be an unmissable contest.
