The reigning Champions will begin their title defence on Sunday April 7th, with the Super League promising to be bigger and better than ever. Here’s everything you need to know before the Warriors Women kick-start 2019.
Women’s Super League
The Women’s Super League season will be played across 14 rounds, which starts on Sunday April 7th before concluding on Sunday September 29th, at which stage the top four teams in the competition will enter the semi-final play-offs. This will see first place play fourth, with second and third coming head to head. The Women’s Grand Final will be played on Sunday 13th October at the Emerald Headingley Stadium, Leeds.
The Warriors start their title defence against close rivals St Helens Women on Sunday April 7th at Robin Park Arena, Wigan. The Warriors will be looking to come out with two points and bragging rights once again, after winning all three encounters against St Helens in 2018.

Coral Women’s Challenge Cup
The Coral Women’s Challenge Cup will take place alongside the domestic league competitions, as the prestigious competition promises to be taken to the next level, with more teams than ever entering, as well as the Women’s competition having sponsorship for the first time through Coral.
All eight Women’s Super League clubs, including the Warriors, will enter the Challenge Cup at Round Two, which will take place on Sunday 26th May. The Quarter-finals will take place on Sunday 6th June and the Semi-finals on Sunday 7th July.
The Women’s final will then take place as part of a triple header event alongside the Men’s Challenge Cup semi-finals at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday 27th July in what promises to be a thrilling curtain raiser to the men’s games, and a great opportunity for the teams who reach that stage of the competition.
