RFL confirm Super League playoff schedule

Huddersfield Giants kick off the Super League playoff week against Wigan Warriors on Thursday.

The Rugby Football League have confirmed the schedule for the Super League playoffs, which kick off with Huddersfield Giants against Wigan Warriors on Thursday.

Another season in the Super League will culminate in the Grand Final on Saturday, October 5.

The Giants, who clinched the leader's shield for the first time in their 81-year history, will not only be fast-tracked to week three with a win over the Cherry & Whites, but will also receive 'ClubCall' in a potential semi-final clash.

Meanwhile, Hull FC will travel to France to face the Catalans Dragons on Friday, before Warrington Wolves and Leeds Rhinos battle each other on Saturday, followed by St Helens against Hull KR.

The losers of the Hull versus Catalans and St Helens against Hull KR matches will be eliminated.

However, the losers of the Huddersfield against Wigan and Warrington versus Leeds games will get a second chance by virtue of finishing in the top four during the regular season.
