Defending premiers the Roosters face a tough assignment to secure a three-peat after copping a rough run of fixtures as the NRL reveals its season draw.

The Bondi club will facing last year’s grand finalists the Raiders and premiership heavyweights Melbourne Storm twice.

The tri-colours will also face the Broncos and arch-rivals the Rabbitohs twice as the NRL prepares for its season to resume on May 28.

The Roosters, who won the 2018 and 2019 premierships, lost their opening two games of the year before coronavirus brought a halt to proceedings.

They will face the Bunnies in their first game back, and also end the season against their fiercest rivals.

Parramatta leads the comp after two rounds with two wins and a points differential of +46 and will be breathing a sigh of relief at only having to play the Roosters, Raiders and Storm once this year.

Cronulla fans will also be a happy bunch as the Sharks have been given two games each against five different sides that missed the finals last year. They have avoided meeting the Storm, Canberra, Roosters, Eels, Rabbitohs, Broncos and Manly twice in the round-robin.

The Broncos and Cowboys will end their season against one another in a mouth-watering Queensland derby while western Sydney will be dealt a feast on the final weekend of the regular campaign as the Tigers play the Eels and the Bulldogs battle the Panthers

Venues for the draw have only been confirmed up until the end of Round 9 while State of Origin will be played over three straight Wednesday nights at the end of the season, on November 4, 11 and 18.

A women’s Origin match will be also played during the representative period, on November 13.
