Double Headers await Storm
Melbourne Storm will take part in three Double Header Matches in 2018.
Announced by the NRL this morning, Storm will travel to Perth, Auckland and Brisbane to play in the blockbuster events.
NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said the double headers would create an exciting element of next season’s schedule.
"We will have double headers in four major cities – three in Australia and one in New Zealand," Mr Greenberg said.
"This is a huge step for the game and I'd like to thank the Clubs involved for their efforts to embrace the concept and ensure the matches eventuated.
"This is also a direct result of us having more control over the Premiership schedule in 2018.
"We have had significant success with double headers at Suncorp Stadium in recent seasons and this is a natural progression.
"It will create more blockbuster events for our fans in 2018."
All four double headers will be broadcast exclusively on FOX LEAGUE, on Foxtel.
