ST Helens will face Huddersfield Giants at the 2016 Magic Weekend, which will again be held in Newcastle on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22.

The full list of Super League fixtures will be released on Monday, but fans are able to plan their Magic Weekend a few days early.

And Saints will face Paul Anderson’s Giants, in the middle clash on day two.

“Magic Weekend is a brilliant event and it’s great that it’s going to be in Newcastle again,” said Leeds coach Brian McDermott.

“It’s a fantastic stadium and there were lots of fans there this year which created a memorable atmosphere.

“I am particularly pleased for everyone involved in Rugby League in the North East.

“I know from personal experience how hard they have worked down the years to promote our game and it is fitting that they get their reward with another Magic Weekend after the success of last year’s event.

“Hopefully it will be even better next year.”
