Halifax’s Championship play off semi final will be screened live on Premier Sports next Thursday, with a 7pm kick off.

Fax will play the highest ranked survivors of this weekend’s knockout fixtures between Leigh and Batley and Sheffield and Dewsbury, with league winners Featherstone hosting the other side.

And Premier have now taken the unusual step of selecting Fax’s game in advance, regardless of who they play.

Logically, a rematch with reigning champions Sheffield, beaten 21-6 by Fax at the Don Valley Stadium last week, seems the most likely outcome.
