Not So Quiet At St James'

Not So Quiet At St James'

We may be mistaken for thinking that St James' Park can be shut down for a while, the electric switched off and everyone off to sunnier climes but it wont be.

There is actually plenty of things still ahead.

The senior players may not return to full training for another 49 days but the under 23 side play their last game tomorrow night at the ground. A premier league 2 play off final against West Ham where promotion is at stake.

Next weekend, the 20th and 21st May, sees the Dacia Rugby League Magic Weekend.

Returning for the third year running, it is a weekend in which the 12 top English rugby league sides play a fixture.

The schedule is as follows:

Saturday, May 20th
Widnes Vikings v Wakefield Trinity (14:30)
Hull FC v St. Helens (16:45)
Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves (19:00)

Sunday, May 21st
Catalans Dragons v Huddersfield Giants (13:00)
Leigh Centurions v Salford Red Devils (15:15)
Castleford Tigers v Leeds Rhinos (17:30)

Aside from some of our football players being called up for internationals at the end of May and the beginning of June, we'll also be having the new kit launch, the announcement of new sponsorship deals and the revealing of the forthcoming premier league fixtures.

One date of interest coming up is the date for those fixtures and it is Wednesday 14th June.

With the daily rumour mill just starting to warm up and transfers to be made both incoming and outgoing, we've forgotten all about the friendlies still to be announced, so there is plenty still going on in this supposed quiet time.
