There are some very interesting clashes right off the bat, including the three-time champions the Penrith Panthers travelling to face perennial heavyweights the Melbourne Storm in Friday’s primetime slot. They will be joined on the same day by the New Zealand Warriors and Cronulla Sharks in round one.

The Newcastle Knights will open their campaign with a rare Thursday evening game, hosting the Canberra Raiders in the Hunter in the first Australian-based match of the season.

The Parramatta Eels, Canterbury Bulldogs, Gold Coast Titans, and St George Illawarra Dragons are all slotted in to play on Saturday, while the Redcliffe Dolphins and North Queensland Cowboys will contest the first Queensland derby of the year.
