Some huge match-ups in Round One, including a double-header at Headingley featuring Leeds Rhinos vs Hull FC and the newly promoted Toronto Wolfpack vs Castleford Tigers on Saturday.
Some surprise names featured in the draw for the quarter-finals, and once again a few ties stole the draw.
Despite leading 22-4 at the half-time break, Castleford Tigers found themselves in yet another nail-biting finish against closest rivals Wakefield Trinity.
The Draw for the Coral Challenge Cup Sixth Round took place this evening, with the remaining Super League sides entering the competition.
Wakefield Trinity were without some major stars as they looked to compete for a top-five spot against a full strength Warrington Wolves side in what was no doubt a tale of two halves.
With the opening round of the Betfred Super League wrapped up, we look at the players who stood out.
Danny Brough is no doubt the biggest name, could his return Trinity, after nine years away, unlock the potential of a side that needs just a little push to go to the next level.
With Christmas now out of the way and the year of 2018 now over, we look forward to the year of 2019 with such hope.
