The 2019 NRC draw saw the season run from August 31 to October 26.

The Western Force won their second NRC title after crushing Canberra 41-3 in the final.

The competition attempted to avoid playing games at the same time as Rugby World Cup matches, with no game played during a Wallabies match at the biggest tournament in the world.

Games were taken all over the country once again, with New South Wales Country facing Sydney in the competition opener in Dubbo. All other Round 1 matches were also played on Saturday, August 31, with the Melbourne Rising playing the Canberra Vikings at Box Hill, Brisbane City tackling Fijian Drua at the GPS Rugby Club and the Western Force hosting Queensland Country at UWA.

Note: Times are AEST until October 5. Daylight savings time (AEDT) is used from October 6.
