NRL 2021: Sunday triple header, Monday double header announced as part of revised draw

  • 01/08/2021

The NRL has announced a revised draw, after all of Saturday's games were postponed due to a snap three-day lockdown in Queensland.

The three fixtures have all been rescheduled as a Sunday triple header, with Sunday's originally slated games pushed to a Monday double-header.

All five games will be played at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium behind closed doors, with daily testing protocols to be increased.

"I want to personally thank Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, State Government officials, and in particular, Dr Jeannette Young for allowing us to present the most stringent biosecurity protocols which when implemented will ensure there is minimal to no risk in allowing our matches to be played with no crowds," says Australian Rugby League commission boss Peter V'landys.

Sunday, August 1

Newcastle Knights v Canberra Raiders - 3:50pm 

Melbourne Storm v Penrith Panthers - 6:05pm

St George Dragons v South Sydney Rabbitohs - 8:25pm

Monday, August 2
