Sydney Roosters face St George Illawarra Dragons and Melbourne Storm take on New Zealand Warriors in a blockbuster ANZAC Day of NRL Round 7 action on Thursday.

The traditional ANZAC Day fixtures promise to be electrifying encounters, with the Roosters and Dragons launching Round 7 on Thursday at the SCG, followed by Melbourne and the Warriors at AAMI Park. The Roosters are full of confidence after edging Melbourne by one point in a thriller last weekend, while the Storm will be hoping to bounce back after their first defeat of 2019.

Two teams struggling for wins then clash in the first game on Friday at ANZ Stadium as Canterbury Bulldogs square off against North Queensland Cowboys. Canterbury are anchored to the bottom of the ladder after going down to Souths on Good Friday, while the Cowboys will be aiming for their first back-to-back wins of the season after taking out the Warriors.

South Sydney Rabbitohs will be looking to keep pace with those at the top of the table when they meet Penrith Panthers in the second game on Friday at Panthers Stadium. Souths weren’t at their best but got the job done against the Bulldogs last week, while Penrith slumped to another poor loss as they went down to Cronulla.

Gold Coast Titans will be looking to make it three wins on the trot when they come up against Wests Tigers at Scully Park after big wins over Penrith and Newcastle, while Brisbane - one of just three teams with only one win so far in 2019 - do battle with Cronulla in the second game on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium.

Two in-form teams collide in the first game on Sunday as Manly Sea Eagles play host to Canberra Raiders, who hold a share of the competition lead after downing the Broncos last week, while Manly were unlucky to see their three-game winning streak snapped in controversial fashion against the Dragons.

Round 7 concludes at McDonald Jones Stadium as the struggling Newcastle Knights entertain Parramatta Eels. The Knights and coach Nathan Brown are under immense pressure after five straight losses, including a 38-14 defeat to the Titans last week.
