Sky Sports to show World Club Challenge

The World Club Challenge between Leeds Rhinos and Melbourne Storm on Friday February 16 at the AAMI Park, Melbourne is to be shown live on Sky Sports.

The 2017 Betfred Super League champions travel to Australia to face the 2017 NRL Premiers Melbourne Storm to be crowned the world’s best Rugby League team. It is only the third time the World Club Challenge has been played in Australia and Rugby League fans will be able to watch live on Sky Sports Main Event (Kick-Off: 9am UK time).

Sky Sports have also confirmed that they will broadcast the Betfred Super League game between Wigan Warriors and Hull FC on Saturday February 10 which will be played at the WIN Stadium, Wollongong. It is the first time ever a Super League fixture will be played outside Europe. Sky Sports will showcase the history making game on Main Event (Kick-Off: 8.45am UK time).

The following week, the two English clubs will take part in the first ever double-header games between Super League and the NRL teams at a single venue when Hull FC play St George Illawarra Dragons and Wigan Warriors face South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, Sydney on Saturday February 17. Sky Sports will once again show both fixtures live on Main Event (Hull FC v St George Illawarra, Kick-Off: 6.45am UK time. Wigan Warriors v South Sydney Rabbitohs, Kick-Off: 8.45am).

Sky Sports Head of Rugby League, Neville Smith, said: “We are delighted to be showing the World Club Challenge once again, as well as the first-ever Super League match to be played outside of Europe and an outstanding double-header in Sydney. These matches are going to be a tremendous part of another massive season of rugby league on Sky Sports, and we can’t wait to take you there.”

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
