Sky Sports exclusive coverage for Rounds 20 and 21 of the Betfred Super League

Sky Sports have made their selections for exclusive coverage in Rounds 20 and 21 of the Betfred Super League in August.

Round 21 fixtures will be accessible via Sky Sports+, starting with the exclusive coverage of the St Helens versus Salford Red Devils fixture on Thursday August 8*.
*For further details of Sky Sports+, see below...
Fixtures announced today between August 1-11 will also include a local derby between the 2024 and 2023 Betfred Challenge Cup winners, Wigan Warriors and Leigh Leopards – which was postponed from its original date in February because of Wigan’s involvement in the World Club Challenge, and will now be played at The Brick Community Stadium on Tuesday August 6.
Leigh and Wigan will both play their Round 20 fixtures on Thursday August 1 to maximise their recovery and preparation time for that match – Leigh at Castleford Tigers, and Wigan at home to Huddersfield Giants, in another match that has been selected for exclusive coverage by Sky Sports.
The second exclusive pick from Round 20 is on Friday August 2, with Play-Off contenders Warrington Wolves and Hull KR meeting for the third time this season – when Sam Burgess’s Wolves will be aiming to complete a hat-trick of wins, but Willie Peters’ Robins will have other ideas.
Sky’s second exclusive pick from Round 21, following the Saints-Salford match on Thursday August 8, is the heavyweight clash between Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors at AMT Headingley on the afternoon of Saturday August 10 (kick-off 3pm).
Sky Sports will continue to provide live coverage of every Betfred Super League fixture – with fans accessing content via Sky Sports+ from August 8. 
SuperLeague+, the global, direct-to-consumer streaming service launched by RL Commercial ahead of the start of the season, will also continue to offer live coverage of the four games in each round not selected by Sky Sports for exclusive coverage – as well as the rearranged Wigan-Leigh match – with delayed coverage of Sky’s exclusive picks.
