The 2020 NRL Premiership kicks off in March, bringing with it Nine’s commitment to the best-in-class coverage and leading innovations.
2019 saw a nailbiting Grand Final finish as the Sydney Roosters outlasted a gritty Canberra Raiders side in a match filled with drama to become the first team in 26 years to win back-to-back premierships. They will be looking to win a historic third straight trophy in 2020, but plenty of teams will be primed to knock them off.
Fans will be able to watch and stream every one of Nine’s NRL games, across Nine and 9Now, with supplementary streams for feature matches plus blogs, highlights and social takeovers all available through the Wide World of Sports digital and social channels.
In the commentary box will be the best rugby league experts in the business, including Phil Gould, Andrew Johns, Billy Slater, Brad Fittler, Johnathan Thurston, Paul Vautin, Ruan Sims, Darren Lockyer, Wally Lewis, Peter Sterling, Allana Ferguson, Sam Thaiday and Paul Gallen.
Three of the top games in every NRL round will be shown live on Thursday, Friday and Sunday – before Nine adds a fourth game on Saturday nights in the run to the finals.
The NRLW will also return for its third season, where the Brisbane Broncos will be aiming for a three-peat after taking out the women’s title in 2018 and 2019.
