Leeds Rhinos Nebtball will play their first ever Vitality Netball Superleague game on 12th February against Celtic Dragons.

Dan Ryan’s team are set to open the highly anticipated new Superleague
season against the Welsh side as part of a double header weekend, which will see all teams compete and the Rhinos playing their second game on the Monday against Saracens Mavericks. 

The fixtures will all be played behind closed doors due to the ongoing
COVID-19 global pandemic.

The competition will feature 11 teams and games will be split across two
venues, with the first half of the season taking place at Studio 001 in
Wakefield before moving to the Copper Box Arena in London for the remaining fixtures.

The Rhinos will play 20 fixtures in the five month season which concludes in a Grand Final on 27th June.

Dan Ryan, Leeds Rhinos head coach, said: “We are so excited that the
wait is almost over for our first fixture. There has been a lot of work going
on behind the scenes since we put this squad together back in October and we are looking in good shape and can’t wait to get started.

“This will be a historic occasion for the club, the players who will
take to the court and the Rhinos organisation as a whole. We we will be proud to represent the city and Yorkshire in the competition this year.”
