The second of this season's elimination playoffs sees fourth take on fifth for a shot against Super League runner-up St Helens in the semi-final. This one's beautifully poised too, with the Dragons finishing higher in the final standings, but the Rhinos ending their season stronger. Follow our guide as we explain how to watch a Catalans Dragons vs Leeds Rhinos live stream and watch all the Super League playoff action online from anywhere.
Catalans Dragons vs Leeds Rhinos kicks off at 7.45pm GMT, which is 2.45pm ET / 11.45am PT. Full TV and streaming options are listed below, and by using a good VPN (opens in new tab), you'll be able to watch your preferred Super League stream from anywhere in the world.
Leeds have played eight times since the start of October, the last of those an exhilarating comeback win over Wakefield Trinity.
Things could barely have been more different for the Catalans, who have played just three times in the same period because of Covid-related cancellations, and just once since October 9. The last of those games was a heavy defeat at the hands of Salford, a game in which the Dragons were 12 points up at half-time.
Match fitness and game sharpness could be issues for Steve McNamara's side, and if that is indeed the case it's difficult to look past Leeds, who have come through a bruising October schedule relatively unscathed, and should be champing at the bit after nearly two weeks off for some much-needed rest and recuperation.
Furthermore, Richard Agar can welcome some key figures back to the fold, in Tom Briscoe, Konrad Hurrell, Matt Prior and Richie Myler, all of whom have just come out of self-isolation. You can watch all the action live, no matter where you are in the world, by following our Catalans Dragons vs Leeds Rhinos live stream guide below.
