St Helens Women will take on the inaugural BWSL champions of 2017, Bradford Bulls on Sunday in their opening fixture of the 2021 Betfred Women's season.
Unfortunately the game will be played behind closed doors at Victoria Park with kick off at 3pm, but we will have regular updates for you on our social media channels on the day of the game. Highlights and the full game replay will also be availanle on Saints TV for subscribers next week too!
Head Coach Derek Hardman will likely hand a debut to Amy Hardcastle, the England star who has been waiting more than a year to make her Saints debut since joining them from oppenents Bradford for the 2020 season.
In the other fixtures, Warrington’s long-awaited debut fixture in the Betfred Women’s Super League – against their local rivals Wigan Warriors this Sunday at noon – has been selected as the first match to be shown live on Twitch in 2021.
Twitch will stream coverage of one BWSL fixture every weekend in 2021 – and as a bonus, will also cover the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup, starting with the preliminary round fixture on Sunday week (April 25) when Huddersfield will kick off their campaign against Warrington.
All matches covered live on Twitch will be repeated on Our League on Monday night from 8pm.
The opening BWSL fixtures, all of which will be played behind closed doors, also include the champions Leeds Rhinos launching their defence against York City Knights; a derby between Featherstone Rovers and Castleford Tigers, who were the bridesmaids in 2019 with defeats against Leeds in both the BWSL Grand Final and the Challenge Cup Final.
