  • the 2019 grand final rematch (Sydney Roosters v Canberra) is back at the Roosters’ home ground, the SCG.
  • Melbourne’s 6pm Friday home game against the Gold Coast is still undecided (the Queensland Reds are playing at Suncorp that night), while the Tigers return to Leichhardt to play the Broncos.

  • The Warriors have another “home” game at the Central Coast (against the Roosters) on Saturday afternoon; Cronulla play St. George-Illawarra at Kogarah (bizarrely, the Dragons will be playing an away game at home); and Canberra hosts Souths in Canberra.

  • The Wests Tigers play the Warriors at Campbelltown in the early Friday game, while Brisbane hosts Cronulla at Suncorp.
  • The Roosters are back at the SCG on Saturday afternoon, playing the Titans (look away Titans fans, this could get ugly); Canberra travel to Townsville to play the Cowboys; and Manly hosts Penrith at Brooky.
  • Canterbury return to ANZ Stadium, playing Parramatta; Melbourne close the round with a “home” game against Newcastle at Suncorp Stadium. The Storm won’t mind, as they have an incredible record at the old Lang Park.
