Was reported by Fox Sports, and the draw is coming out this week, so I would say yes.

TRADITIONAL rivals South Sydney and the Sydney Roosters are set to do battle in the opening round of the 2019 NRL season, according to reports.
The Daily Telegraph has revealed the Round 1 fixtures, with Melbourne and Brisbane to play in the season opener at AAMI Park on Thursday, March 14.

On the Friday night, Newcastle and Cronulla clash in the Hunter before Rabbitohs and Roosters add another chapter to their long-running rivalry when they do battle at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Super Saturday will feature the Warriors hosting Canterbury in Auckland, the Wests Tigers taking on Manly, and North Queensland beginning their post-Johnathan Thurston era against St George Illawarra.


On Sunday afternoon, Panthers Stadium is set to be packed when Penrith take on Parramatta at 4pm, who will be desperate to forget their 2018 season, before Gold Coast host Canberra in the later game.

Good to start off with a home game. Can’t complain about that.

That’s a pretty good way to open the season. I’m betting we play panthers in round 2 lol.

Glad to see round 1 won’t clash with the Download festival the weekend before.

Cambo in March is good, its like a day/niter game, weathers still warm and daylight saving will still be going

Agree. Hoping the opening month isn’t as brutal for us as it was this season.

Round one at Cambo v the silver tails is a good way to start the season. No easy games in the NRL and first 6 rounds anything can happen. I think Manly with all the drama of this year and a new coach in Des could be the big improvers in 2019 so it will be a test for our mob

rather we got the same draw as last season

Same old , same old , all about the TV NOT the fans. I will be lucky to see 2 games at the ground next year coming from the country. Amazing to see the Tonga experience and what effect it has on the players. To bad we see empty stadiums where all the players hear are echo’s.

Full draw release on Thursday apparently… No doubt we’ll get leaks thru the week
