The Rugby Football League has confirmed the schedule for the first week of the Super League play-offs.

After the regular season wrapped up on Sunday, all league positions were finalised with Huddersfield top and Salford bottom.

Joining Huddersfield in the play-offs are Warrington, Leeds, Wigan, St Helens, Hull, Catalan and Hull KR.

Huddersfield's first topping of the table in 81 years means they face fourth-placed Wigan on Thursday, with the winner getting a week off and the loser given a chance of redemption the following week.

Should the Giants win, they fast-forward straight to week three where they will have the 'Clubcall' privilege of picking their semi-final opponents.

On Friday Catalan head to Challenge Cup finalists Hull, while on Saturday Warrington and Leeds square-off at 3pm before St Helens and Hull KR do battle at 5pm.

The losers of the Hull-Catalan and St Helens-Hull KR games will go out, with the winners given the chance to fight on a week later. Like the Huddersfield-Wigan game, the loser of the Warrington game will have a second life.

Super League play-off structure:

Week One:

Thursday September 12: Huddersfield (1st) v Wigan (4th) 8pm.

Friday September 13: Hull (6th) v Catalan (7th) 8pm.
