Saints Announce 2018 Fixtures

The countdown has begun!

Saints will kick off their Betfred Super League campaign with a mouth-watering clash against Castleford Tigers at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday February 2 (7:45pm).

The game will be the first time the two sides have met since THAT semi-final at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle and is sure to be one of the most anticipated ties of the season.

All eyes will be on how Saints start their year after that heart-breaking loss – with Ben Barba entering his first full season with the club – whilst the Tigers will want to show Super League their year wasn’t a one-off.

Justin Holbrook’s men then travel to the Stade Gilbert Brutus to take on Catalans (Saturday February 10, 6pm) – the scene of Theo Fages’ wonder offload – before preparing to face Huddersfield on the road 13 days later.

The Easter Weekend has a traditional flavour for those nostalgic amongst us with the biggest derby in world rugby league against Wigan taking place at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Good Friday.

Saints will then make the short journey to the Halton Stadium on Easter Monday to take on Widnes.

Other fixtures to look out for are the Magic Weekend game with the Vikings in Newcastle on May 19 and the ‘double’ on the road at Hull (July 13) and Wigan (July 19), followed by a home clash with Warrington (July 26), to end the regular season.

Saints will enter the Challenge Cup at the Sixth Round stage on the weekend of May 13, with the quarter finals played on the weekend of June 3.

The semi final of the cup is on August 5 with the Final on August 25.

The Grand Final this year is on October 13.
