Moreton Daily Stadium to host two NRL blockbusters

Posted: 8am 23 Jul 2021

Rugby league fans can enjoy not one, but two, NRL blockbusters at Moreton Daily Stadium next month when rounds 20 and 21 come to town.

Moreton Daily Stadium, the home of the Dolphins, will host the round 20 fixture between the Cronulla Sharks and Manly Sea Eagles on Sunday, August 1.

Dolphins CEO Tony Murphy is thrilled to see Moreton Daily Stadium host the first NRL fixture in the region. The venue has hosted preseason trial games, but never an NRL fixture.

“This is great news for rugby league fans across South-East Queensland, but particularly the Moreton Bay Region. We want the rugby league community to see exactly what we can do here at the stadium, which is hosting great football,” he says.

“It’s also great news for local businesses with thousands of visitors heading this way. We are thrilled to be hosting the Sharks v Sea Eagles.”

The round 20 clash will welcome back some big names, who have been part of the Dolphins’ community - Toby Rudolf, and Daly Cherry-Evans, just to mention a few.

The Dolphins Intrust Super Cup & Hastings Deering Colts team will relocate their round 15 home game against Mackay Cutters to another yet-to-be-confirmed venue, to ensure NRL bio security requirements are met.

Moreton Daily Stadium will also host the round 21 fixture between the Canterbury Bulldogs and Wests Tigers on Sunday, August 8 at 2pm.

Tickets will be on sale via Ticketek shortly.
