RUGBY League fans can get their festive fix of action in a mouth-watering Boxing Day bonanza.
Top of the bill is the Super League derby clash between Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at Headingley (11.30).
The Rhinos are likely to give a debut to new signing Kylie Leuluai - nicknamed 'The Hulk' at Australian NRL club Manly - while Wakefield boss John Kear could take a first look at some of his off-season recruits.
Leuluai said: "I didn't come here for a holiday and I'm looking forward to working hard in pre-season and getting my first game under my belt.
"I know I'll have to work hard to earn my place in the squad and prove to people why I've been brought in. That starts on Boxing Day and I can't wait."
Elsewhere, coach Paul Cullen's Warrington Wolves side travels to neighbours Widnes Vikings (3.00), where Wolves winger Henry Fa'afili will come up against his former teammate Toa Kohe-Love.
Fa'afili said: "It will be different seeing him playing against me, but at the same time I've played against many of my friends. You just have to enjoy it."
Closer to home, there's the traditional Heavy Woollen derby between Batley and Dewsbury at Mount Pleasant (noon), which usually attracts its fair share of Giants fans.
And that's certainly expected to be the case this year, with Huddersfield opting not to play a festive fixture ahead of Super League XII.
The Giants and Halifax have this year decided not to compete for the Infirmary Cup, which in recent seasons had become an Academy fixture.
It means Huddersfield fans must wait until the pre-season clash at home to Wigan Warriors on Sunday, January 21, to see the first team in action.
It is then followed by the game against Leeds at Headingley, which is a joint testimonial for Paul Reilly and Keith Senior.
But for the Rhinos, there's the small matter of facing Wakefield first, with coach Tony Smith believing the clash will play a crucial pre-season role.
Former Giants chief Smith knows his side are in for a stern examination.
The Wildcats may only have escaped relegation on the last day of the season, but the Rhinos coach is relishing what will be a very physical work-out.
"At times last season they (Wakefield) showed that they are a very good team and they will want to reproduce that form on a consistent basis," Smith said.
"Tuesday's game sees us step up our pre-season preparations. They are a settled team now with their new coach and John Kear had a terrific end of season, and he will want that form to continue starting on Boxing Day.
"Every team in Super League looks to improve with each year that passes and Wakefield will be looking to build on last year's performances in 2007."
