Super League’s biggest star and Liverpool fan, Blake Austin, can’t wait to get onto the field at Anfield, he signed for Warrington Wolves from the NRL in Australia at the start of the season.

All 12 of Super League’s teams descend on the city for the first ever Magic Weekend to be held in Liverpool after previously being held in Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Austin is one of Super League’s biggest summer signing and he’s been a star player and currently leads the Steve Prescott MBE Man of Steel standings, a player of the year award that is voted on performances every week with the top performer scoring three points.

Blake Austin will take part in his first ever Magic Weekend and he admitted that he can’t wait to play at Anfield: “It’s actually one of those moments, a kid from Australia to step on that field and play, it’s going to be a big moment.

“I took on supporting Liverpool when I knew I was coming over and to be on that turf will be awesome.

“It’s great to get our product in front of as many new faces as we can, I’m a real believer that we’ve got a great product and it’s just a matter of getting as many people to see it as we can.”

Tommy Makinson has history at Anfield, the Rugby League star scored a hat-trick for England in their 2018 Autumn International test series win against New Zealand.

The St Helens winger will return to Anfield on May 26 when his side face Castleford Tigers at the Dacia Magic Weekend.

Saints are flying high at the top of the Super League table this year ahead of rivals and Austin’s side Wolves by four points.

Tommy Makinson added: “The test series we played there with England, it was pretty special and to put the performance in that I did there is something I’ll always remember.

“I think having only played one game of rugby there, I think to take this game back with our domestic side St Helens and to widen Super League there will be fantastic.”
