NRL Premiership 2020
The NRL Telstra Premiership is the pinnacle for Rugby League players around the world, with many of the best players on the planet in action each weekend around Australia. The 2020 season is shaping up to be the best yet, and you can enjoy the action when you stream the NRL live on a mobile or internet connected device, as well as watching on a standard or HD TV.
2020 NRL Telstra Premiership Season
When: 12 March – 4 October
Where: Australia and New Zealand
There is no higher quality of Rugby League anywhere in the world, and this year’s NRL season promises plenty of excitement with the usual twists, turns, bumps and bruises. The 2020 edition culminates with the Grand Final on the 4th of October, and includes twenty-five rounds of competitive, hard-hitting action.
Among the sure to be most watched fixtures are the traditional pre-season Charity Shield match between the Rabbitohs and Dragons, the newest edition of the Perth Nines, the hugely popular Roosters-Dragons match-up during ANZAC round and the Grand Final rematch between the Roosters and the Raiders on the 23rd of May. The season will also take a couple of weekends off throughout June and July for the fiercely contested State of Origin series, which commences on the 3rd of June at the Adelaide Oval. At the end of premiership season, the NRL Grand Final – one of the most watched and best-attended sporting events in Australia, and with a wider global audience that reaches well into the millions – determines the Premiers.

Must See Live TV
The 21st season under the ‘NRL’ banner shapes up as an intriguing one, and with twenty-five rounds of the best rugby anywhere in the world accompanied by a number of standalone events during the year, these are the fixtures you don’t want to miss.
NRL All Stars
The NRL All Stars is regaining some good momentum heading into 2020, with the Australian Indigenous All Stars set to take on the New Zealand Maori Kiwis. There is sure to be plenty of passion, with First Nations players representing their cultures in just the second edition of the match-up.
When: 22 February
Where: Cbus Super Stadium, Robina
Anzac Day Cup
The ANZAC Day Cup, contested annually by the Sydney Roosters and the St. George Illawara Dragons, has been played since 2002 and is always the scene of a fiery encounter. The Dragons have typically had the edge, winning 11 of the 18 match-ups, but they went down 20-10 last year against a Roosters side which would ultimately go on to win the Premiership. With Sydney again expected to be a force in 2020, they’ll likely be heading in as favourites this year.
When: Saturday April 25, 4:00pm Sydney time
State of Origin 2020
“State against state, mate against mate”. That has been the State Of Origin motto since the concept began in 1980 and was seen in the very first game at Lang Park when Queensland captain Arthur Beetson belted Parramatta team mate and New South Wales player Mick Cronin. Club allegiances are thrown out the door when 34 players put on the Maroon and Blue. Though not a part of the NRL Premiership itself, it’s a hugely important fixture on the Rugby League calendar. Last year saw New South Wales win the trophy for the second time in a row, a huge turnaround considering they won just once between 2006 and 2017. The Maroons will be desperate to reassert their dominance, but they won’t have it all their own way against a NSW side with plenty of talent. Expect one of the most fascinating Origin series’ in recent memory in 2020.
When: Game I – 3 June; Game II – 21 June; Game III – 8 July.
Where: Game I – Adelaide Oval, Adelaide; Game ll- ANZ Stadium, Sydney; Game III – Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane.
2020 Grand Final
Twelve months of blood, sweat and hard work goes on the line during the last 80 minutes of the season in the NRL Grand Final. What each player has worked for and dreamed about their whole life can come to fruition if their side can find a way to get over the line just one more time. If successful, you’re the winner of Rugby League’s greatest prize, as we saw last year with Roosters defeating the Canberra Raiders to earn their 14th Premiership in total and third since the competition went national.
When: Sunday 4 October
Where: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
