Only three weeks after the Grand Final game the 2018 NRL schedule has been released with some good news and some bad news.
Good news being 12 Home games in Townsville, but 2 Thursday games in there as well.
Here’s some more highlights
- A standalone weekend for a Sunday night State of Origin II, which means only two rounds will be directly affected by State of Origin;
- The introduction of a Thursday night game in the Easter Round (North Queensland Cowboys against Penrith Panthers). This means games will be played on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday over the Easter break;
- Some of the game’s greats rivalries being played out twice during the season, including: Broncos v Cowboys, Bulldogs v Eels, Rabbitohs v Roosters, Dragons v Sharks and Panthers v Eels;
- Cowboys will play two “away” games in Cowboys territory Darwin (Round 14 Vs Eels) and Cairns (Round 16 Vs Rabbitohs)
Of course the COWBOYS CALL TEAM will return in 2018 with every one of the Nth QLD Cowboys games live for you across Nth QLD on Triple M and 4TO FM.
