Fans already knew the opening two rounds - against Leigh at Leeds on Friday, March 26 and against Wakefield at St Helens on Thursday, April 1, both on Sky Sports - but many of the other fixtures didn't have a precise day or kick-off.

Super League has now confirmed Wigan will play Leeds (April 15), Castleford (April 22) and Hull FC (April 29) on successive Thursdays. The first will be at Headingley, with the other two at the DW Stadium.

Matches against Leeds and Hull FC will be on Sky Sports, sandwiching a 6pm showdown with Castleford which will be broadcast to season ticket holders on the OurLeague site.

Round 3 will see clubs returning to play at their home grounds. Round 5 will include Leigh Centurions' first competitive home game since March 2020 and their first Super League game at Leigh Sports Village since 2017, when they host reigning Betfred Super League champions, St Helens.
