Rugby Super League’s  Magic Weekend will now be held at St James’ park in 2015. The Magic Weekend was originally to be held at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium but it was recently confirmed that their stadium won’t be available next May due to building work.

Newcastle’s United stadium St James’ Park will host three matches, one match on Saturday 30th May and three matches on the following day, Sunday May 31st.

The last time any super league rugby was held in the North East was 1999, when the Gateshead Thunder entered the competition.
