NRL Nines is coming to Perth this February

A festival of rugby league action is set to take over the pre-season in 2020.

NRL Nines will take all 16 NRL teams and four NRLW teams to Perth for the very first time this February.

A two-day festival of league action and live entertainment, NRL Nines will take over HBF Park on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 February.

The preseason competition will see $1,000,000 in prize money on the line, with non-stop action on field.

The faster-paced Nines format of rugby league allows the most exciting aspects of the game to flourish, showcasing the speed and agility of the athletes.

How does NRL Nines work?

On the men’s side, four pools will be drawn from the 16 clubs, with up to 25 matches played across the two days.

In the women’s action, a round-robin style tournament will see the four clubs face off against each other before the top two teams go head-to-head in the Grand Final.

The tournament will harbour a summer vibe and festival-like atmosphere, with constant entertainment across the two days.
