Super League rugby is back for 2022! It's a new-look Saints in terms of personnel, but will it be the same result? St Helens could become the first team to win four consecutive titles in the modern era, but with the Dragons, Hull KR and Leeds looking stronger, there should be plenty of twists and turns. Oh, and haven't you heard it's Warrington's year? Read on as we explain how to watch a Super League rugby live stream online for every 2022 game wherever you are.
Catalans, who won their first ever League Leaders' Shield and reached their first ever Grand Final last season, once again look best placed to challenge St Helens' dominance.
They've lost James Maloney but replaced him with Mitchell Pearce, while the Saints have seen mainstays Lachlan Coote, Kevin Naiqama, Theo Fages and James Bentley depart, with youngsters Jack Welsby and Lewis Dodd looking to step up.
Coote could help Hull KR push on to the next level, while the Rhinos finally look like a force again with the additions of Aiden Sezer, Blake Austin and Bentley, and an exciting new era begins for the Wolves under Daryl Powell.
Meanwhile, Toulouse's ascent brings something different to the league, but they've got their work cut out avoiding the drop, particularly with the departure of main man Johnathon Ford. Whatever unfolds over the coming weeks, our guide has you covered - here's how to get a Super League live stream from anywhere this season.
