BBC's Super League Show

Super League

The Super League Show on Sunday, 27 September on BBC Two is at 1310 BST and comes live from Headingley Carnegie stadium.

Harry Gration and the team will be at the stadium for Sunday's historic ClubCall announcement as Leeds Rhinos select their Super League play-off qualifying semi-final opponents live on air, the first time this has happened in the sport.

Sunday's programme will include highlights from Friday night's preliminary semi-final win for the Catalans Dragons over the Huddersfield Giants and Saturday's victory for Wigan over Hull KR.

Leeds, the defending Super League champions will then announce live on air on Sunday whether they will play the Catalans or Wigan at Headingley on Friday 2 October for a place in the Grand Final.

The team not picked by the Rhinos will travel to face St Helens in the other qualifying semi-final on Saturday 3 October.

The winners of both games will play in the Grand Final at Old Trafford on Saturday 10 October.

Leeds chief executive Gary Hetherington has revealed he will help decide the club's opponents.

Hetherington said: "We will have a strategy for deciding who we pick which we will reveal before announcing our pick at Sunday's press conference.

"Myself, Brian and the coaching staff will decide on who our pick will be. The players are not bothered who we play because they know that every team will be extremely tough just 80 minutes away from Old Trafford."

The programme will have all of the reaction from the ClubCall announcement including interviews with both the Leeds coach Brian McClennan and the coaches of the clubs they could face.

The Super League Show is repeated on Monday morning at 0345 BST on BBC Two.

The Super League Show is available to watch again via the red button from Sunday evenings at 1900 BST (NB: Not always available on Freeview).
