So you better get your hubs sorted! http://www.theaustralian.com.au/sport/nrl-embraces-thursday-night-football/story-e6frg7mf-1226498769998 THE 2013 NRL season will kick off with Thursday night games being played in the first four rounds of the competition. But 2013 will be the first season that four Thursday night games form part of the opening month of the competition. The decision means rugby league will be broadcast on television five days a week for the opening four rounds. The official NRL draw, including a schedule of days and times of each match for the first 20 rounds, will be finalised by mid-November.
