The Betfred Championship heads into its second week this week and there are some very interesting fixtures.

Toronto Wolfpack stay on the road as they head to fellow promoted side Barrow Raiders. The Canadian side set down a real marker with a 34-12 win at early season favourites Leigh Centurions while the Raiders need an improvement after a humbling 56-12 defeat at London Broncos.

The Centurions meanwhile, are at home again this week as they host Yorkshire side Batley Bulldogs, who started the season with a big defeat in the south of France against current Championship Shield winners Toulouse. The French side face a tough encounter as they face Featherstone Rovers, who beat them to the post in the race for a top four position.

The Broncos are hoping to build on their big win against the Raiders with a win at Dewsbury Rams, who won a brilliant game against Sheffield Eagles 20-18 last time out.

Elsewhere, Middle 8s surprise package Halifax entertain 2016 Championship Shield winners the Eagles and there is a Manchester derby as Swinton Lions take on Rochdale Hornets.
