Murrayfield: Venue for Magic Weekend

Former Bradford coach Brian Noble will go up against his old club at Magic Weekend after the Crusaders were drawn to face the Bulls.

The clash will be one of eight Super League games to take place at Murrayfield on the weekend of May 1 and 2.

The draw to decide the fixtures was undertaken by Paul Sculthorpe and Brian Carney live on Sky Sports News.

Noble - who will go back to another ex-employer in Wigan in round one of the 2010 campaign - enjoyed a highly-successful stint in charge at Bradford.

Elsewhere, reigning champions Leeds will go up against Wakefield as the eight play-off teams from 2009 were drawn to play each other.

St Helens, beaten by the Rhinos in the Grand Final for a third successive year, will face Hull HR, while Wigan take on Huddersfield and Castleford play Catalans Dragons.

Warrington's new recruit Richie Myler will come up against his old team Salford, who have never won at Magic Weekend, while Hull FC will face Harlequins in the Scottish capital.

Magic Weekend fixtures (order and kick-off times to be confirmed):
Hull FC v Harlequins
Bradford Bulls v Crusaders
Warrington v Salford
Leeds v Wakefield
Wigan v Huddersfield
St Helens v Hull KR
Castleford v Catalans Dragons
