Description:
JJB Sports Super League IV was the official name for the year 1999's Super League championship season, the 105th season of top-level professional rugby league football in Britain, and the fourth championship run by Super League. The start of Super League VI saw the emergence of a North East based Rugby League Club, Gateshead Thunder as well as newly promoted Wakefield Trinity Wildcats to expand the league to fourteen teams.

Rule changes

  • The 40/20 rule was introduced to reward accurate kicking in general play. The rule, which had been used in Australia since 1997, gave the head and feed at the resulting scrum to a team that kicked the ball from behind their 40 metre line so that it bounced in the field of play before going into touch behind their opponent's 20 metre line.


Season summary

The season finished with a grand final between 1997 champions Bradford Bulls and the inaugural Super League champions St. Helens in which the Saints triumphed in a closely contested game.
