    <div align="center"> "After successfully introducing the concept in 2007 and 2008 and firmly establishing it in the Rugby League calendar, we believe our plans for 2009 will take the event to the next level and offer supporters a unique family entertainment experience. </div>
    <div align="center"> "A number of cities had expressed an interest in hosting this event but we believe this new location has all the right ingredients to continue its development. </div>
    <div align="center"> "The concept of the Magic Weekend is all about taking the sport on the road and staging the Super League in prestigious and exciting cities." </div>
    <div align="center"> Gordon McKie, Scottish Rugby's chief executive, said: "We are thrilled to have secured another major sporting event for Murrayfield and Edinburgh, again underlining Scottish Rugby's commitment to hosting world class premium events at the Stadium. </div>

  3. Appalling decision. I have this enormous dislike of Murrayfield and its well out of the city centre. I doubt I'll be attending for the next two years, what a shame.

    Gutting. I went with my uni mates this year. It was really cheap and a great laugh! The Huddersfield/Warrington and Bradford/Leeds games were brilliant! What a shame it's moved. :(
