Super League stars share their #magicmoments
Super League’s Magic Weekend returns to the Etihad Stadium, Manchester on May 25 and 26 and fans are being encouraged to share their favourite memories from previous Magic Weekends ahead of the two-day extravaganza.
The Magic Weekend sees all 14 Super League teams play in seven extraordinary matches all in one place and some of the competition’s biggest stars have been sharing their favourite memories of the unique event as part of an interactive social media discussion.
Hull KR winger David Hodgson was one of the first players to share his memories, recalling the moment when his last-minute try snatched victory for the red and whites against cross-city rivals Hull FC in 2012.
“It’s still almost a bit of a blur to be honest,” he said. “One thing that really stood out for me was the noise our fans made behind the sticks, it was incredible.
“Personally it was great for me to score the winning try but it was a great result and day for all the boys, the fans and everyone at the club.”
Fans are being asked to share their memories of past Magic Weekends on social networking sites Twitter and Facebook by using the tag #magicmoments with all messages posted before 5.00pm on Friday May 24 being catalogued to appear on the stadium’s big screen and pitch perimeter boards.
More comments from Hodgson, as well as interviews with other Super League stars such as Ryan Hall and Lee Briers will be available to read in full on the Super League website, www.superleague.co.uk and the Super League Facebook (facebook.com/superleague) and Twitter (@SuperLeague) accounts over the next few weeks.
