Wellbeing round details

Super League’s mental and physical health campaign returns in 2022, working alongside our clubs to Tackle the Tough Stuff.

In partnership with Rugby League Cares, the Tackle the Tough Stuff campaign will highlight some of the most pressing issues surrounding physical and mental health.

Over Round 13 several high-profile current and former players have shared their deeply personal stories – including dealing with loneliness and anxiety, bereavement, growing up in challenging surroundings, and testicular cancer.

The past two years have been incredibly difficult for everyone, leaving many feeling anxious, isolated, or bereaved. 

As a sport we have an opportunity to change lives by opening the dialogue surrounding difficult issues, dismantle stigmas, and use our collective voice to encourage our community to reach out, to speak up, and get checked out.

In addition to the variety of written and video content released over Round 13, the three broadcast games will include Rugby League Cares Fan Zones. Rugby League Cares will provide a double-decker bus to deliver ‘Hair, Hands, Head’. Their aim is to make managing mental fitness an everyday thing, like getting your hair cut. 

We invite fans to come and get a free haircut / hand massage and chat about tips for managing mental fitness with one of our Offload presenters. 

These fixtures include: 

Thursday 19 May - Warrington Wolves vs St Helens (Sky Sports)

Friday 20 May - Salford Red Devils vs Castleford Tigers (Sky Sports)

Saturday 21 May - Hull KR vs Catalans Dragons (Channel 4)
