The biggest domestic Rugby League tournament is the Super League, which is the top league in England. This is the only professional Rugby League competition in the Northern Hemisphere.
The Super League is decided by a full season’s schedule with the team finishing on top of the table winning the League Leaders’ Shield. There are then Play Offs to determine who will win further honours.
The Play Offs for the Super League culminate in the Super League Grand Final and the winner of that is proclaimed the overall champion. The Super League champion will then face off against the winner of the Australian NRL in the World Club Challenge.
As things stand, the favourite to win the 2019 Super League Regular season is St Helens, with the side massive odds-on favourites to once again claim victory, while they are also odds-on to be the XXIV Grand Final winner, with the side dominating the competition this year. The side most likely to be standing in their way in the regular season is Warrington, while the side the bookies fancy to pip St Helens in the Grand Final is long-time rivals Wigan.
The sport is one that should not be watched lightly. Like rugby union, league is a sport in which nobody goes in half-hearted, and if they do, then they come out far worse for it. Known for its huge hits, stunning tries and big bust-ups, rugby league is a sport that is incredibly physical and makes most others look like non-contact sports.
