Telstra Premiership fixtures will be played in rural Sydney next season.
Penrith will play in Bathurst in round three, while Canberra will play a game in Wagga Wagga in round eight and in round 10 St George Illawarra Dragons will travel to Mudgee.
“Our commitment to playing matches in regional locations will continue in the 2019 schedule,” NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg told NRL.com.
“We saw some amazing scenes in some of our regional matches in 2018 and I see no reason why we won’t see many more highlights in 2019.”
Wagga Wagga Mayor Greg Conkey said the Raiders game would inject $2 million to the economy.
“This marks the start of the partnership between Wagga Wagga City Council and the Raiders, which will continue to grow and benefit both our community and the club in the coming years,” Conkey said.
“As well as boosting rugby league at a grass roots level, hosting an NRL game in Wagga Wagga is estimated to inject $2million into the local economy and will add to the 1.3 million people who visit our city each year.”
