Women's Super League semi-final to be shown live on Our League

Women's Super League semi-final to be shown live on Our League

Watch Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers live from 1pm on Sunday.

Leeds Rhinos will battle Castleford Tigers for a place in the 2018 Women's Super League Grand Final on Sunday, and you can watch the action exclusively LIVE on Our League!

Getting underway at 1pm, the Rhinos will be favourites for the tie, having finished top of the table this year, while they overcame the Tigers 20-14 in the Women's Challenge Cup Final back in August.

Leeds beat Cas' 40-12 at home in May but were pushed hard in a 32-20 win on the road last month.

With a host of England internationals on both sides, the game looks set to be a high-class affair.


Looking ahead to the game, out-of-action captain and Woman of Steel contender Lois Forsell said: "The next couple of weeks are massive for the team.

"Over the last couple of weeks we've hit a good bit of form. All the girls have been great and stood up for each other.

"We've done the double, but we all want the treble now."

Speaking after her side's 50-6 win at York which sealed the League Leaders' Shield, star forward Rhiannion Marshall added: "The first half we put a massive effort in, really took it to them and they couldn't handle us so we were pleased.

"We dropped off in the second half with some overplaying, but that's something we'll learn from going into next week against Castleford.

"We've won the league, but we've still got the biggest final to go!"


The weekend's other semi-final sees local rivals Wigan Warriors and St Helens face off at Robin Park from 2pm on Sunday.

Two newcomers to the league for 2018, the sides were separated by just two league points by the end of the campaign.

Never separated by more than ten points in their ties this year, Wigan won 16-6 at home in May and completed a hard-fought double in August with a 14-10 success away from home.

Two sides with immense defensive records this year - conceding an average of just over 10 points a game - another tight tussle is in store on Sunday.

The Women's Super League Grand Final takes place at Manchester Regional Arena on Saturday, October 13, 1pm kick off.
