A little bit of magic is heading to Brisbane in 2019, with North Queensland Toyota Cowboys prop Matt Scott today adding his touch to the launch of next year's Magic Round Brisbane.
For the first time in NRL history, one round will be held at one ground with all 16 teams to converge on Queensland's capital for the four-day festival of rugby league at Suncorp Stadium from 9-12 May.
The Cowboys are set to close out the weekend with a clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Sunday 12 May (4.05pm).
NRL Chief Executive Officer Todd Greenberg joined Scott and NRL players in the host city to celebrate tickets on sale, and said Magic Round Brisbane would be a highlight on the NRL calendar in 2019.
"This will be one of our biggest events of the year and we're planning for plenty of fan engagement and activities in the lead up to the round," Mr Greenberg said.
"Then there are the games themselves. Four days of Premiership Round footy at one of the best stadiums in one of the best cities in Australia – it doesn't get much better than that."
