Championship Round Three Preview


The Championship is back on Saturday as Toulouse welcome Sheffield Eagles in a repeat of last years Championship Shield Final. The French side won that day and they are expected to again as the Eagles have suffered another slow start to the season.

The rest of the games take place on Sunday. Barrow Raiders, who did well to get a draw against Toronto Wolfpack last week, welcome another promotion candidate in Leigh Centurions on Sunday. The Centurions recovered from their defeat against the Wolfpack to defeat Batley Bulldogs at home last week.

Toronto Wolfpack take their unbeaten start to Halifax. The Canadian side have one win and one draw so far and they face another big test against a side that can be very dangerous in Halifax.

Another interesting match up is between two sides that played in the Middle 8s last season: London Broncos and Featherstone Rovers. The Broncos look set for another promotion push and you can guarantee the Rovers will not be far behind. It should make for intriguing viewing.

Rochdale Hornets are looking to finally get their season underway at the third attempt as they welcome Dewsbury Rams to Spotland. In the weeks other game, Swinton Lions will host Batley.
