The NRL has released the mouth-watering match-ups for rounds three and four of the competition.

Rugby league action in Australia will get back underway on May 28, with Brisbane taking on Parramatta in Thursday night football.

Friday night football returns with one of rugby league’s oldest rivalries taking place between Sydney Roosters and South Sydney, with Gold Coast travelling to North Queensland that night.

Super Saturday will be headlined with Melbourne hosting Canberra, which will be the first time the two sides have met since the Raiders ended the Storm’s 2019 Premiership quest, while Cronulla will host Wests.

Also on Saturday, New Zealand Warriors, who have re-located to New South Wales due to travel restrictions – will face St George Illawarra.

Sunday football will begin with Penrith taking on Newcastle, with both sides being unbeaten so far. The final game of the first weekend back is Manly v Canterbury.
