Perth to host first ever rugby league international

Perth to host first ever rugby league international
January 29, 2016

Perth's nib Stadium will host Western Australia's first ever rugby league international in 2016 with a Test match between Australia and New Zealand to be played on 15th October.

It was also announced that Perth will host two NRL Premiership matches, the Round 13 match between South Sydney and Gold Coast Titans and the Round 19 clash between Manly and the Warriors.

Announcing the matches, NRL Head of Football Todd Greenberg stated “we have seen some wonderful crowds in Perth in recent seasons and the city will again host two of our Premiership matches in 2016.

“So it stands to reason that Perth should also host the best that international rugby league can offer.

“It is clear that Perth has embraced our club games in recent years and we will see another two important Premiership matches in the city this year.

“The support that the game has received is a key reason we have decided to stage a Test match in Perth.”

The October Test match has been backed by the Western Australian Government through its Tourism WA and VenuesWest agencies.
