We play Leeds following Thurs on Sky so unless that can be moved it’s likely we will face an evening trip on a Thurs/Fri night too. That’s providing BBC pick Bradford v Leeds which is in same boat.

Mick gledhill as tweeted he believes that one game is Warrington v Wigan and the other Bradford v Leeds.

There’s also two on Sky on Thurs/Fri night, as well as two on BBC Sat/Sun

Hull are not the team they were 2 years ago, we would go over to their place as favourites for it. Plus I do like an away day at the KC, a nice Sunday afternoon wouldn't go a miss.

I agree that would be nice, but as Hudds Tigers has already said, we play Leeds the following Thursday, so it won't happen. Maybe Saturday afternoon, but it will probably be Thursday or Friday evening unfortunately

The logical thing would be;

Thursday = Salford v Hull KR
Friday = Bradford v Leeds
Saturday = Warrington v Wigan
Sunday = Hull v Cas

Giving Leeds 2 days extra rest after playing a lower league team? Really? Just so some people can have a Sunday out?

Can’t see that happening at all.

In my view the most probably 4 are:

Salford v Hull KR - Thurs (don't know why but Salford to me is always a pick for TV, probably because it doesn't affect a load of fans)
Bradford v Leeds - Fri - it should be Friday given it's down the road and won't affect attendances, if the RFL have a spine
Hull v Cas - Sat - unless Leeds v Cas gets rearranged this the last day for us and for the RFL to get a decent crowd. If it's a midweek fixture they can probably knock off a good 1000-1500 Cas fans travelling.
Wigan v Wire - Sun - obvious pick for BBC

Agree with this, plus Leeds half marathon on the Sunday so be bonkers to stick more traffic into the area when it’s dealing with road closures

This is the RFL we are talking about here, the same people who have organised Magic Weekend in Liverpool at the same time as a Marathon and Half Marathon there. So, Bonkers just about sums them up
