ANZAC tribute to kick off Round 13 NRL action this weekend

A tribute to our soldiers who fought in the battle of Lone Pine at Gallipoli in WWI will begin round 13 on Thursday Night League, in lieu of the traditional ANZAC day fixture.

The Dragons will need to fire against the defending premiers to keep any hopes of playing finals football alive from 7.50pm in Wollongong.

Straight after his new Roosters teammates walk off the field, dual NRL premiership and Rugby World Cup winner, Sonny Bill Williams, will join The Late Show with Matty Johns ahead of his return to the NRL.

On Friday Night Football Rabbitohs coach Wayne Bennett will plot against his former club as he aims to put the coaching tenure of the man who replaced him, Anthony Seibold, under more duress. Stick around for the post-game press conferences and reaction with Jess Yates for what promises to be a dramatic night of footy.

Super Saturday is headlined by the impressive Panthers who will be put to the test by a resilient Raiders side intent on showing they’re not a spent force at 7.30pm.

In the lead up at 5.30pm, Kalyn Ponga will aim to boost the Newcastle Knights back up the ladder by stepping past a Wests Tigers outfit hell bent on making the finals.

Sunday Ticket hosted by Hannah Hollis will show us whether the Sharks are the real deal when they take on a powerful Parramatta Eels side from 4.00pm.

Wrapping up the weekend of footy that was is Sunday Night with Matty Johns at 6.00pm and the Big League Wrap straight after at 7.00pm.
