Huddersfield Giants will take on Catalans Dragons in Super League’s Magic Weekend next season.

The Giants will take on the Perpignan side in the 2017 fixtures, in the opening match of Sunday’s programme on May 21 with a 1pm kick-off.

Newcastle’s St James Park again hosts the event, with the two teams having already met on the ground in the 2015 season when the game ended in a 22-22 draw.

There will also be a Grand Final rematch at Super League’s 11th Magic Weekend as Wigan Warriors take on Warrington Wolves in Saturday’s final game.
