Buderus hopes to create links between Knights and Rhinos in new role

Rugby League legend Danny Buderus says he is hoping he can forge new links between his current club Newcastle Knights and his old Super League team at Leeds Rhinos as part of a new role at the NRL club.

We caught up with Buderus ahead of the restart of the NRL from 28th May, which you can watch live on Sky Sports in the UK.

The NRL season is set to restart on 28th May and Sky Sports will televise every game live throughout rounds three and four. It all kicks off with a clash between two unbeaten sides in Brisbane and Parramatta. The Broncos will be desperate to avenge last year’s 58-0 semi-final thumping against the Eels.

The following night, fans will be treated to a Queensland derby between the Cowboys and Justin Holbrook’s Titans, before a player who has found himself in the spotlight a lot, Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell, will face his former side and reigning premiers the Roosters, as we watch the two bitter Sydney rivals go head-to-head.

Saturday sees St George Illawarra’s new recruit Issac Luke take on his old team-mates for the first time, the Warriors, who have been forced to relocate to New South Wales due to the pandemic.

Also on Saturday, the Wests Tigers play Cronulla, before Melbourne meet Canberra in a replay of the 2019 semi-final.

On Sunday you can watch undefeated sides Penrith and Newcastle go head-to-head, followed by Manly and the Bulldogs.
