The two sides last clashed back in 2021, during Saints’ treble winning campaign. Saints won the game 86-0 at Warrington’s Victoria Park, the game that kickstarted the history making season!

The Women’s Super League season will then start for the Red V two weeks later over in Yorkshire. York Valkyrie became the first team to beat Saints since 2019 with victory at the LNER Community Stadium last spring, beating the Saints 13-6.
The Saints were able to avenge that defeat later on in season however, with a strong 12-4 victory over the Valkyrie at Crusader Park. Zoe Harris and Tara Jones crossing to give the Saints two points on a warm Summer’s day.
Based off the two fixtures last season, it promises to be a tight affair between the two sides at the LNER Community Stadium just 15 days from now.
The game will be shown live on The Sportsman for those who cannot make the trip over to Yorkshire!
