The English Super League is the Northern Hemisphere's premier rugby league competition. Its inaugural season began in 1966 and in 2022 will run from February to September, which is even longer than the NRL.

While it's definitely considered a lower standard than the Australian competition, the Super League is noted for its high point scoring and heavy contingency of former NRL stars (we're not kidding, over 25% of all Cowboys players have suited up). This season sees Mitchell Pearce and Dylan Napa debut for the Catalans Dragons.

Last year saw the St Helens Saints make it 3 titles in a row, defeating Catalans Dragons in a close Grand Final. The Saints will be looking to make history and aim for 4 straight titles this season.

For the first time in Super League, there are 2 French teams in the competition, as Toulouse Olympique were promoted from the Championship.

How to watch the English Super League in Australia

In Australia, Super League matches aren't available on free-to-air television.

Kayo Sports and Foxtel are showing up to 4 games each round. It should be pointed out, though, that games are typically held in the middle of the night or early morning for Australian viewers, so you might prefer to watch the games on demand rather than live, which is easiest with Kayo Sports.

Watch the English Super League with Foxtel iQ

If you're an existing Foxtel IQ customer, it's easy to add sports content to your package for an additional $29 a month. If you're a new customer, there's a bit more work to do. Foxtel iQ boxes incur an installation fee (whether you get a technician or not) and there's sometimes a waiting period.

It's $29 a month for sport, which sounds fair, but the catch is that you must also have the Foxtel Plus pack, which is another $49 a month. This brings the total cost to $74 a month. Your subscription also gives you access to Foxtel GO so you can stream on the run.

Super League competition format

Each team plays 29 games per season, with 2 games against each other at home and away. There's also a Magic Weekend round and another 6 games determined by a team's ladder position. Only the top 5 teams enter the finals series, which eventuates with the Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford on 24 September.

The team that finishes last each season is relegated to the Championship and a new team is promoted from the Championship each year in what's dubbed the Million Pound Game.
