FOX LEAGUE, on Foxtel, will celebrate Beanie for Brain Cancer Round with a host of special guests and features across the week.

This year’s Beanie for Brain Cancer Round is hoping to raise $3 million for brain cancer research with fans urged to buy a Mark Hughes Foundation beanie at NRL matches this weekend.

FOX LEAGUE is the only place to watch every game of Beanie for Brain Cancer Round, LIVE, ad-break free during play and in HD.

League Life will highlight the work of the Mark Hughes Foundation with a special feature on former Knights halfback Scott Dureau and his cancer battle.

Former Newcastle Knights captain, Paul Harragon, is the special guest on NRL 360 on Wednesday night and will be joined on the panel by his former nemesis Mark Carroll.

NRL CEO, Todd Greenberg, said:

“Beanie for Brain Cancer Round is one of the most important weeks for the community on the rugby league calendar.”

“The collective support shown from the players, coaches and fans at the grounds each year is nothing short of incredible and goes a long way to finding a cure and tackling brain cancer once and for all.”

The big guests continue across the week on FOX LEAGUE with Rugby League Immortal Mal Meninga joining the Thursday Night League panel to give an exclusive update on the Gold Coast Titans search for a new coach.

Knights’ superstar Kalyn Ponga will make his Super Saturday debut on Saturday night alongside premiership winning duo Mick Ennis and Luke Lewis.

Blues State of Origin hero Dale Finucane will show off his singing skills with a special performance on Sunday with Matty Johns which will also see the return of Emma Freedman to the show, following the birth of her son William.
