The Eagles will kick off the new season on a Friday night (7.45pm) when they travel to the Tetley's Stadium to face Neil Kelly’s Rams.

The RFL have adhered to the Eagles' request to start the new season on the road, with Mark Aston's side not playing their first home game until Sunday 4th March against London Broncos.

That will give the Eagles the vital extra time required to have their new home at the Olympic Legacy Park up to RFL standard.
