Leigh will play four home games and three away as they bid to return to Super League.

Leeds’ prize for finishing top of Super League at the end of the 23-match programme is home advantage against 2014 Grand Finalists St Helens and Wigan.

The top four teams all earn four home games in the Super 8s with the four below them having to play four away fixtures.

The teams carry forward points accrued so far and the team finishing top at the end of 30 matches will receive the league leaders’ shield and go into a top-four play-off for Old Trafford.

The dates and order of the Super 8s fixtures will be finalised over the next 48 hours and revealed on Wednesday morning at a press conference at UK Media City in Salford but the matches will be:

Leeds v St Helens, Wigan, Castleford, Warrington (h), Huddersfield, Hull, Catalans Dragons (a).

Widnes’ last-gasp win over Salford earned them an extra home game in the middle eights, known as the Qualifiers.

The teams finishing in the first three spots will form part of Super League in 2016, with the fourth-placed finisher meeting the fifth-placed team in a “million-pound” match to determine the other spot in the top flight.
