The programme will be broadcast firstly on BBC One in the north of England on Sunday at 1.00pm. Times will vary during the season, depending on other sporting events.

It is then repeated on BBC Two across the UK later on Sunday night at 4.45am.

It is also available on the BBC iPlayer for the next seven days, as well as online at bbc.co.uk/rugbyleague.

The series, broadcast each week from BBC Leeds, will be presented by Harry Gration.

He will be joined by regular studio pundit Robbie Paul, currently playing for Leigh Centurions, and other top names from the sport.

Commentator Dave Woods and reporter Tanya Arnold will help reflect the passion and excitement of Super League rugby as the season progresses.

Richard Coventry of Televideo, who produce The Super League Show for the BBC, said: "The programme will continue to bring viewers all the best action as well as in-depth features from the Rugby League world.
