Saints To Face Widnes At Magic

A local derby lies in wait for Saints at the 2018 Dacia Magic Weekend.

Justin Holbrook’s side will take on Widnes Vikings at St James’ Park, Newcastle, on Saturday May 19 (3pm).

The match will kick off the annual jamboree which sees six games take place in one venue over two days.

Saints will be hoping for a Magic return after beating Hull FC 45-0 at the event in 2017; Holbrook’s first game in charge.

Magic Weekend has been held in Newcastle every year since 2015 and has drawn in the three highest attendances for the weekend since the event began in 2007.

Saturday’s other games see Castleford Tigers take on Leeds Rhinos (7:30pm) following Wigan’s game with Warrington at 5:15pm.

Salford Red Devils and Catalans Dragons will kick off the second day when they go head-to-head for the first time in the event’s history at 1.00pm.

Wakefield Trinity then take on Huddersfield Giants at 3.15pm, before Hull KR make their highly anticipated return to Magic Weekend against derby rivals Hull FC, bringing the curtain down on an action-packed weekend at 5.30pm.
