Watch Super League Magic Weekend rugby stars trying out the Geordie accent

Rugby excitement is returning to the North East as Super League stars arrive for Magic Weekend

The two-day sporting extravaganza takes place at St James’ Park on May 21 and 22, with thousands of fans set to descend on Newcastle to watch top teams in action.



Salford Red Devils, Widnes Vikings, Warrington Wolves, Castleford Tigers, Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Wakefield Wildcats, Catalans Dragons, St Helens, Huddersfield Giants, Hull FC and Hull KR will play a total of six games over the two days.

But players have been challenged to try out the Geordie accent ahead of the action - and have proved they are better at playing rugby than they are with regional lingquiestics.
