Hall hoping history can repeat itself

Former Leeds Rhinos star Ryan Hall is hoping history can repeat itself as the NRL returns to action on Thursday 28th May, live on Sky Sports.

Hall was part of the Leeds Rhinos team that won an unprecedented three Super League Grand Finals in a row between 2007 and 2009 and now he is hoping his current side, Sydney Roosters can add to the two NRL titles they have won in 2018 and 2019.

The winger’s Great Britain tour was cut short last Autumn by a knee injury but he says he has put the coronovirus shutdown to good use to get himself up to speed for the restart.

The NRL season is set to restart ion 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.
