Leeds Rhinos Women will play their first game of the Betfred Women’s Super League (BWSL) season on Friday 20th May against Huddersfield Giants Women at Headingley as part of a double header of rugby with the men’s team.
Lois Forsell’s team who lost out to St Helens in a memorable Women’s Challenge Cup Final at Elland Road in their last game will kick off their season against Giants, who were last year’s Shield winners.
The Women’s game will kick off at 5.45pm and will be followed by the men’s Betfred Super League game against Wakefield Trinity at 8pm.
The year the BWSL has expanded from 10 teams to 12 in 2022, with Barrow Raiders and Leigh Miners Rangers joining a seven-team Group 2 which will also include Castleford following their decision to step down from Group 1 in the interests of long-term development.
St Helens and Leeds will be joined by Huddersfield Giants, Wigan Warriors and York City Knights in Group 1.
The winners of a Play-Off series will be promoted from Group 2 to Group 1 in 2023, with no relegation from Group 1 in 2022.
