SUPER League will support Black History Month with its own distinctive plans to recognise the impact made by black players in the sport over the past 125 years.

This forms part of Super League's support for, and contribution to, the important game-wide anti-discrimination strategy, launched at the start of October.

Over the next four weeks, Super League will reveal the amazing stories of thirteen influential players who left their mark on the sport, and on the communities they represented.

The month-long campaign will peak at Round 17 (fixtures played on 22 and 23 October), which will be re-named Black History Round.

The fixtures in Round 17 will see Hull FC travel to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons as well as Wigan Warriors v Salford Red Devils, Castleford Tigers v Hull KR, Huddersfield Giants v Wakefield Trinity and St Helens v Leeds Rhinos.

Some outstanding biographies of some unforgettable players including Billy Boston, Clive Sullivan and Leon Pryce will be featured across Super League digital channels over the coming weeks, starting with Lucius Banks who, in 1912, became the first black professional rugby league player.
