New faces, old enemies, a massive double-header and Easter traditions . . . rugby league is poised to deliver a spectacular first month of action at ANZ Stadium in 2018.
Mighty March will see all four of the Stadium’s home clubs hit the field in a run of six blockbusters that will light up the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Over the first four weekends of the season, the Rabbitohs, Eels, Bulldogs and Wests Tigers will dish out all the terrific tries, huge hits and magic moments you could ask for . . . we hope you’re ready.
Here’s how March is coming at you:
- Wests Tigers v Sydney Roosters, Saturday 10 March: What more could you want from a Round 1 fixture? Benji back in a Wests Tigers jersey, Teddy facing his old club and Cooper Cronk and Josh Reynolds making their club debuts. Can’t. Miss. It! Tickets here
- Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs v Penrith Panthers, Friday 23 March: It’s a battle for the west in the Bulldogs first home game of the season. Home debuts for new recruits Aaron Woods and Kieran Foran will have Bulldogs fans locked in for this cracker against the Penrith Panthers. Tickets here
- Historic Rd 3 Double-Header, Saturday 23 March: It’s double the fun with two games back-to-back in the spectacular Round 3 Double-Header at ANZ Stadium. Opening the show is South Sydney Rabbitohs v Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles before Parramatta Eels v Cronulla Sutherland Sharks. With two games for the price of one and the Sydney Royal Easter Show pumping next door it’s the perfect day out for the whole family. Tickets here
