The fixtures are in a different order for 2014, with derby matches again dominating the theme for the eighth edition of the weekend at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium.
Four Saturday fixtures will preceed a three-match Sunday line-up over the weekend of May 17 and 18 as Magic Weekend returns to the Etihad for the third straight year.

Scott Dureau made his long-awaited comeback from serious illness in last year's meeting, scoring 18 points as the Dragons beat the Broncos 46-18.
Hull FC take on city rivals Hull KR on the Saturday, a year on from a controversial finish in 2013 when video referee Steve Ganson incorrectly awarded a winning try to the Black and Whites.
