St Helens have been installed as the clear favourites to win the Challenge Cup after they thrashed Wakefield to power through to the semi-finals on Saturday. The Super League leaders were at their majestic best in the first half of a 48-10 triumph at Lachlan Coote, Tommy Makinson, Morgan Knowles, and Regan Grace all scored. Further tries from Zeb Taia, Mark Percival, Jonny Lomax and Kevin Naiqama after the break wrapped up a comprehensive victory. They have won this trophy 12 times previously and they are now odds-on to make it 13 after enjoying such a strong season on all fronts.
This weekend marked a key moment in the history of Super League, with Rugby League fans turning out in force at Nou Camp, Barcelona to break the Betfred Super League attendance record.
The Draw, Kick-off and TV details have been released for the 2020 Super League season. A repeat of the 2019 Betfred Super League Grand Final, the first ever Super League double header at Emerald Headingley and some high-profile summer signings all make for an eye-catching opening round of fixtures in the 2020 season.
On 31st January, the Super League will get back underway for a new season when St Helens and Wigan clash at the Totally Wicked Stadium. It is in, fact, a clash between the two favourites for the Grand Final.
