The Magic Weekend has quickly grown from a fun day out to one of the must do event son the sporting calendar as Rugby fans and non-Rugby fans come together to watch great action from the Super League. There are not many sports where rival’s fans can sit side by side for a full day and the only danger you are in is been out song by the opposition fans!

With the sun usually) shining, fancy dress aplenty and a relaxed atmosphere around the ground, the day is fantastic for supporters or just lovers of sport but the magic Weekend is of course all about the action on the field and that rarely fails to live up to expectation as the players always give us a spectacle with many of the biggest talking points and moments to remember from a Super League season happening at the Magic Weekend.
