The 2019 NRL season will be the 112th season of professional rugby league in Australia and the 22nd season run by the National Rugby League.

Teams[edit]

The lineup of teams will remain unchanged for the 13th consecutive year.

Pre-season[edit]

The 2019 pre-season featured the All Stars match held on February 15 at AAMI Park.[10] The 2019 World Club Challenge match saw the NRL premiers Sydney Roosters defeat the Super League champions Wigan Warriors.

Regular season[edit]

For the first time, the NRL announced that the entirety of a round of games will be hosted at a single venue, adopting the Super League's Magic Weekend concept. It will take place during Round 9 at Suncorp Stadium.[11]

State of Origin will be played in Perth for the first time, with Game 2 of the 2019 series to be played at Optus Stadium.[12]
