The Women's Super League expands to seven teams for the 2018 season. Newcomers Leeds and Wigan join Bradford, Castleford, Featherstone, St Helens (formerly Thatto Heath) and York. The regular season, comprising fourteen home-and-away rounds, runs from April 8-September 30. A top-four play-off follows, with a Grand Final on October 13 at Manchester Regional Arena.
Driving back from yesterday's Sheffield Eagles-Toronto Wolfpack Championship game, I picked up BBC Radio Leeds's Sunday afternoon rugby league programme. Much of the last hour featured interviews with studio guests Lauren Hickey (Bradford Bulls Women) and Joanne Bracken (Featherstone Rovers Ladies). Interestingly, Bracken is the soft tissue therapist (massage, to you and me) for Rovers' men's team. Sounds as though the intention is to play at least some of the women's games as curtain-raisers to men's matches.
