THE NRL on Friday unveiled rounds three and four of its revamped 2020 competition, which will kick-off on Thursday, May 28.
After more than one month's hiatus, the 2020 campaign - derailed by the coronavirus pandemic - will resume with Moruya's Rhys Kennedy and his Brisbane Broncos taking on the Parramatta Eels, which are coached by former Batemans Bay Tiger Brad Arthur and have Shellharbour's Jai Field in their top-30 squad, from 8pm.
The next day, the Cowboys will battle the Titans (featuring Kiama's Mitch Rein and coached by Milton-Ulladulla's Justin Holbrook) from 6pm - before the Roosters and Rabbitohs lock horns.
The latter match will see Kiama's Josh Morris play his first game for the tri-colours alongside his brother Brett and Albion Park-Oak Flats' Drew Hutchison, as Nowra-born Cody Walker is expected to line up for South Sydney.
Saturday's triple-header will kick-off with two winless sides going toe-to-toe, as the Warriors entertain the Dragons from 3pm - with the Red V's squad containing Gerringong's Tariq Sims, Korbin Sims and Jackson Ford, Shellharbour's Trent Merrin, Albion Park-Oak Flats' Adam Clune and Merimbula-Pambula's Euan Aitken.
At 5.30pm, Cronulla-Sutherland plays the Wests Tigers, before the Melbourne Storm (containing Bega's Dale Finucane) clash with Milton-Ulladulla's Jack Murchie and his Canberra Raiders.
Round three will wrap up on Sunday with Penrith's match with Newcastle - coached by former Batemans Bay Tiger Adam O'Brien.
The final match of the round will see Gerringong's Reuben Garrick, Cobargo's Morgan Boyle and their Sea Eagles wrestle the 14th-placed Bulldogs (headlined by Tathra's Adam Elliott) from 6.30pm.
Venues for all these matches are yet to be determined, except for they'll be played in NSW.
Then following round three's rivalry-round format, the Broncos and Roosters will kick-off round four against the reigning premiers on Thursday.
Friday will see the Panthers encounter the Warriors before the Storm tries to bring down the Rabbitohs.
The Eels and Sea Eagles are first up in Saturday's double-header, before the Cowboys and Sharks take the field - in Valentine Holmes' first game against his former club.
