The Dragons and Broncos meet in the first game of the 2018 NRL season

The draw for the 2018 NRL season has been announced - and it all starts with a blockbuster clash on Thursday March 8 between the St George Illawarra Dragons and Brisbane Broncos!

All eyes will be on UOW Jubilee Stadium as St George Illawarra’s marquee signing Ben Hunt takes on his former club Brisbane in the opening game of the new season. Signing a $1 million deal, Dragons fans will be desperate for early bragging rights from their star halfback.

The big games keep coming immediately for the Dragons as they face bitter rivals the Cronulla Sharks in Round 2, with Josh Dugan lining up against the Red V for the first time since his controversial departure.

Round 3 sees a mouth-watering Grand Final rematch between the Melbourne Storm and North Queensland Cowboys take place at AAMI Park - and Johnathan Thurston will be back to guide the Cowboys around this time around. Can he get one back on Origin teammates Cameron Smith and Billy Slater, or will defending premiers Melbourne poor more salt into the wound?

The annual ANZAC Day clash between the Dragons and Sydney Roosters has delivered some thrilling showdowns over the years, and 2018 promises to be no different in Round 8, while Wests Tigers fans will surely be chomping at the bit to lay into former skipper Aaron Woods as the joint-venture outfit square off against the Canterbury Bulldogs in Round 12.

Overall, it appears as if the Roosters have received the best draw on paper before the season kicks off. The Tri-colours, who have added Cooper Cronk and James Tedesco among others to their squad for 2018, will play against fellow top four clubs from last season just four times throughout all of 2018 - the second least of any side in the competition (Parramatta have the least with three).

Furthermore, they play against bottom four sides more than any other club - meaning literally a third of their 24 games are against the cellar-dwellers of 2017.

The Tigers have drawn the short straw, playing against the 2017 top four in the first four rounds of 2018, while by Round 5 they will have played reigning premiers Melbourne twice.

Read on below for the full 2018 NRL draw, including venues and starting times (AEDT).
