Highlights from the opening round of matches in the 2019 Super League season, as the competition kicks-off with some of the biggest fixtures in the calendar.

Super League has a new format, new rules and a host of new faces, with all 12 clubs strengthening their squads ahead of the campaign. 2018 champions Wigan Warriors start the defence of their title away to local rivals St Helens. The teams finished in the top two places last season and start the new year amongst the favourites to lift the title this year. It's derby day too for Hull KR and Hull FC who meet at Craven Park, whilst Warrington's Blake Austin is expected to make his debut for the Wolves against Leeds. Austin has arrived from Canberra Raiders and is tipped to be one of the stars of the season. London Broncos are back in Super League after their promotion last year. The Broncos first fixture is at home to Wakefield. Castleford face Catalans and Huddersfield play Salford. Show less
