Last week saw Super League make history by travelling out of Europe and hopefully more to follow as our three representatives do battle with the NRL.
But life goes on in the United Kingdom and the four ‘bottom’ clubs of last season are set for their games in hand respectively.
A shot at redemption maybe? Who knows but below are the previews for either game, who will come out on top?!
Hull Kingston Rovers Vs Catalan Dragons
First up is a return trip to KCOM Craven Park for our Sky cameras since their promotion party as Hull Kingston Rovers host Catalan Dragons.
Either team will wish to get their season underway following a miserable start.
Adam Quinlan Vs David Mead
First up is a focus on the full-backs, particularly Adam Quinlan and David Mead.
Quinlan enjoyed a strong performance against Leeds last time out, scoring a try and causing them all sorts of problems.
Similar actions from Mead though as the Dragons almost overcame St Helens against all the odds in France.
Both with potential and a point to prove, easily making this the key battle.
Danny McGuire Vs Luke Walsh
Now of course the half-backs and Danny McGuire is named against Luke Walsh.
McGuire came close to guiding the Robins to a famous victory over his old club last time out, so his influence seems to be showing.
Unfortunately, Walsh has been rather quiet for the Dragons, but all the more reason to give him a mention as he definitely has a lot to prove.
Both possess fluent kicking games and leadership skills, all a matter of who is up to showing it.
Justin Carney Vs Fouad Yaha
Finally, two three-quarters are selected and hardly surprising in juggernauts Justin Carney and Fouad Yaha.
Carney has proved quite a hit in Super League in his career, but has yet to truly get off the mark with the Robins.
Yaha has impressed many, earning, not only game time, but a promotion to a regular first teamer.
Certainly a battle of strength but also who is the smarter and who will react quickest when it comes to support play.
A very difficult game to call as both are desperate to get off the mark in 2018.
The Robins looked to have improved last week, playing to impressive rugby and coming together as a team which is important.
Shaun Lunt should lead by example from acting half and should he link with McGuire effectively then they can prove difficult to live with.
That and Chris Atkin looked dangerous last week. He has a lot of potential but it is a matter of whether he can click.
As for their forward pack, with respect, they look a bit weak but the addition of Danny Tickle may help.
He, Mose Masoe, Jordan Walne and Lee Jewitt really have to step up in the front row.
Looking at the visitors, though they look strong on paper, it is whether they have the audacity to take it into a game once again.
Walsh has been quiet and adding to that, is lacking a first choice half-back partner, so their attack will continue to be a problem, as it has been so far this season.
Their pack however, may get on top. Remi Casty, Julian Bousquet, Mickael Simon and Greg Bird may dominate in such an area, but then again, it is a huge question of whether they will.
Same could be said regarding their three-quarters. Iain Thornley and Brayden Williame have plenty of skill and will need to link up with Jodie Broughton and Yaha.
However, the Dragons still look ordinary and there’s no reason why it should change here.
In recent years, KCOM Craven Park has been a happy hunting ground for them but that looks set to end.
KR, backed by their noisy support, should get on top of them and edge home.
It will be close but this time around, the Robins will bob along to their first win of 2018!
