The road to the NRL finals is a little clearer with the release of the completed schedule and venues for the final six rounds of the regular season.

The end of the season is deliberately left without fixed dates and venues to allow broadcasters to make the most of capitalising on the best games.

On the surface, the Parramatta Eels appear to have received one of the better schedules with only Thursday and Friday games to play until the finals.

Without Johnathan Thurston, a couple of marquee games have lost some of their lustre including the Cowboys vs Melbourne and the 2015 Grand Final re-match between the Cowboys and the Broncos.

However, there are still some exciting games to look forward to including a return to the Sydney Cricket Ground for retro round between St George Illawarra and South Sydney.

In great news for fans, it’s been confirmed Saturday night games will be simulcast on the Nine network for the final five rounds including Cooper Cronk’s final regular season home game against the Raiders in Round 26.

“The competition is already incredibly tight but we know that it will only get tighter the closer we get to the finish line,” NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said.

“As always this will be a competition which will keep us all guessing until the very last round and the very last match.”
