All seven fixtures in this year's Super League Magic Weekend are a repeat of last season's instalment, it has been confirmed.

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.

2014 Magic Weekend schedule:

Saturday, May 17
12.30pm: Broncos v Dragons
2.45pm: Vikings v Red Devils
5.00pm: Hull KR v Hull FC
7.15pm: Warriors v Rhinos

Sunday, May 18
12.30pm: Wildcats v Tigers
2.45pm: Giants v Bulls
5.00pm: Wolves v Saints

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.

London Broncos take on Catalans Dragons in the opener - the sixth time these two teams have met in the event.

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.

Reigning champions Wigan face 2012 title winners Leeds. The Warriors ended the Rhinos' perfect record in Magic Weekends last season with a 20-16 victory.

Warrington face St Helens in the last of three derbies on Sunday. Adrian Morley scored his first try in over two years in Wolves' comfortable 48-22 won over Saints last season.

2014 Magic Weekend schedule:

Saturday, May 17

12.30pm: London Broncos v Catalan Dragons.

2.45pm: Widnes v Salford

5.00pm: Hull KR v Hull FC

7.15pm: Wigan v Leeds
