    TV Guide: NRL ANZAC Round on Nine and 9Now

    NRL on Nine’s ANZAC Day will feature two games seeing the Dragons take on the Roosters and the Storm take on the Rabbitohs on Channel Nine and 9Now. 

    There are four games live this weekend on the 9Network, headed up by the ANZAC Day double with the Dragons v Roosters clash at Allianz Stadium from 3:00 pm, followed by Storm v Rabbitohs at 7:30 pm.

    With their backline boosted by the return of Dom Young alongside a hardened forward pack featuring enforcer Victor Radley, the Roosters are chasing a bounce-back win, while the Dragons, who are resurgent under new coach Shane Flanagan, go on the hunt for points via the scorching speed of fullback Tyrell Sloan. 

    Host James Bracey will be joined by rugby league experts Andrew Johns, Phil Gould, Cameron Smith, Brad Fittler, Johnathan Thurston and Billy Slater, along with Danika Mason providing sideline updates.

    A famous rivalry born out of the 1970s features on Friday Night Footy when the Manly Sea Eagles meet the Parramatta Eels at 4 Pines Park on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

    The NRL Sunday Footy Show will dissect the round so far from 11:00 am before the wounded Raiders meet Nicho Hynes and the Sharks in Sunday Arvo Footy from 3:00 pm.

    NRL on Nine commentator, Phil Gould: “ANZAC Day is the most important day on the Australian calendar. It’s a day to stop, reflect and give thanks to all who served this country in conflicts around the world, to protect our freedom and allow us to enjoy the country and the lifestyle we have today.” 

    “The traditional ANZAC Day match between the Sydney Roosters and St. George-Illawarra Dragons, is my favourite club game of the year. Rugby league has become a part of this National day of thanks and celebration, honouring our service men and women.

    “The respective clubs and players involved, always see this as a privilege to be a part of the day, and their performances never disappoint. The importance and excitement of the occasion motivates all participants.”
