Rugby league fans won't have to wait much longer for the full list of fixtures for the 2023 NRL season, with the league set to unveil the complete draw on Thursday, November 10 at 11am.

Naturally, some leaks have already been forthcoming, with the full first round of fixtures being confirmed as well as State of Origin and Magic Round, which will be played on the weekend of May 5-7.

Meanwhile, the first grand final rematch between western Sydney rivals Penrith and Parramatta has been earmarked for Round 4.

The NRL have also confirmed that all pre-season fixtures will be confirmed at the release, meaning we'll have a clearer picture around the World Club Challenge, Charity Shield and a number of other games.

Most exciting is the arrival of the NRL's 17th team, the Dolphins, and just how their introduction will affect the pre-existing power structures in the game as well as the return of the bye.

Traditional Anzac Day fixtures are also confirmed.
