The NRL has released the revised draw for rounds nine to 12, with more venues opening up.
- North Queensland opens the round on Thursday night, hosting the Roosters at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
- The Friday double-header is at Cbus Super Stadium (Gold Coast v Warriors) and Bankwest Stadium (Souths v Wests Tigers).
- Cronulla play Penrith at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium (Kogarah Oval) in the Saturday afternoon game; Brisbane hosts Canterbury at Suncorp Stadium, and Canberra plays Melbourne at GIO Stadium.
- Newcastle return to McDonald Jones Stadium, playing Parramatta; while the second game at Kogarah in 24 hours is between St. George-Illawarra and Manly.
- 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 Dragons return to Wollongong on Saturday afternoon, playing Canterbury at WIN Stadium. In the 5:30 game, Souths “hosts” Newcastle at the neutral Bankwest, while Manly hosts Parramatta at Lottoland/Brookvale Oval.
- The Warriors play Cronulla at their temporary home, Central Coast Stadium, while Penrith returns to Panthers Stadium to play North Queensland.
- Parramatta opens the round with a home game at Bankwest against the Wests Tigers.
- It’s a Queensland double on Friday, with the Cowboys playing Manly at QCB, while the Broncos play Melbourne at Suncorp.
- 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.
- On Sunday, Newcastle are back at McDonald Jones Stadium, playing Canterbury; while the Gold Coast play Penrith at Robina.
- The Dragons have a proper home game at Kogarah on Thursday night, playing Souths.
- 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.
