Channel 9 the only place to see every NRL Finals game live
FOUR NRL FINALS PLUS THREE NLRW GAMES LIVE AND FREE THIS WEEKEND ON CHANNEL 9 AND 9NOW
PANTHERS V EELS BATTLE OF THE WEST ON FRIDAY NIGHT
The premiers from Penrith, circling Sharks, Cowboys riding high, electric Eels, Melbourne’s Munster magic, red-hot Roosters, the Bunnies big guns and Ricky’s Raiders – will all combine in the only place you can watch every NRL Finals game, Channel 9, beginning at 7.00pm on Friday.
NRL on Nine will showcase four huge NRL finals, three NRLW games and seven hours of Live Sunday coverage from the new Allianz Stadium, including the Sunday Footy Show, in the ultimate feast of finals footy for week one.
Hosted by James Bracey, the best line-up of rugby league commentators in the game will assemble on Nine’s Wide World of Sports to cover every second of the action.
Rugby league Immortal Andrew Johns, premiership-winning captains Cameron Smith, Johnathan Thurston, Brad Fittler, Paul Vautin, Paul Gallen, Darren Lockyer, and multiple premiership winners Billy Slater, Sonny Bill Williams and Phil Gould AM will provide the best insight and analysis for every NRL finals game.
In commentary, Mat Thompson, Peter Psaltis, Chris Warren and Ruan Sims will call the action with Danika Mason, Allana Ferguson and Emma Lawrence on the sidelines.
On Friday night at 7.00pm, it’s the battle of Sydney’s west Part III – Panthers v Eels, firing up NRL finals footy for 2022. The Eels are two from two against the minor premiers this season, but can they do it in a Qualifying Final when it matters most in front of a boisterous Panthers home crowd? A crowd buoyed by the return of their best player, Nathan Cleary, after a five-week suspension.
On Saturday, a finals double-header begins from 5.00pm, when the Melbourne Storm pull out all their tricks at home with the magic of Cameron Munster, up against the Canberra Raiders inspired by Jack Wighton. The Raiders roll into AAMI Park as the underdogs who finished in eighth spot on the ladder, now on a mission to take down the masters of September success in an elimination final.
Straight after this game, at 7.00pm, the Cowboys and Sharks wage war for the right to a week off and a ticket straight to the preliminary final. Former Sharks premiership winners Valentine Holmes and Chad Townsend will be riding into town as Cowboys, tasked with silencing the ‘Up Up Cronulla’ victory song from Nicho Hynes and his hungry Sharks.
On Sunday afternoon from 3.00pm, the hatred level redlines again at Allianz Stadium for a second straight week when the Roosters meet the Rabbitohs, also an elimination final – the other win-or-bust encounter.
James Tedesco’s Roosters – red-hot after eight wins on the trot – need to take down the Rabbitohs big guns Latrell Mitchell, Cameron Murray and Cody Walker again to keep their premiership dream alive.
Adding to the action, every NRLW game of Round 4 will be available Live and Free this weekend. A Saturday NRLW double-header in Melbourne from 1.00pm places the Titans v Eels and Broncos v Dragons ahead of the two men’s NRL finals – all on 9Now, Channel 9HD and 9GemHD.
Then on Sunday, following the Sunday Footy Show live from Allianz Stadium at 11.00am, the Roosters and Knights NRLW match is live from 1.00pm, leading straight into the last NRL finals game of week one between the Roosters and Rabbitohs.
