Sky Sports select Easter weekend fixtures

Sky Sports have selected the games they will show live over the Easter period and round 10, which includes the eagerly awaited return of the Hull derby to Betfred Super League.

Five games will be broadcast live in five days over one of the most exciting weekends on the Super League calendar and it all kicks off on Thursday March 29 with another local derby as Wakefield Trinity host Castleford Tigers at The Mobile Rocket Stadium (7:45pm kick-off).

Then on Good Friday, Hull Kingston Rovers take on Hull FC in the first Super League Hull derby in over 18 months, as the Sky Cameras head to KCOM Craven Park (12:50pm kick-off).

In the same fixture two years ago, Hull FC pulled off an incredible comeback from 20-0 down with 20 minutes to play, to seal a pulsating 22-20 derby win.

The second fixture that day is another Good Friday classic as old rivals St Helens and Wigan Warriors lock horns at the Totally Wicked Stadium (3:15pm kick-off).

St Helens are in front of the Sky Sports cameras again on Easter Monday as they travel to Widnes Vikings (3:05pm).

Then at 5:15pm Catalans Dragons take on Huddersfield Giants in the fifth live game on Sky Sports over the Easter period.

Sky have also chosen to show Salford Red Devils v Warrington Wolves on Saturday April 7 (3:15pm), which is followed by Catalans Dragons v Wigan Warriors (5:15pm).
