The list, which was released at the same time as the fixtures for the regular season, saw the NRL confirm times, venues, teams and dates for two weeks of action which will see 18 games, including the World Club Challenge.
They will play the St George Illawarra Dragons during the first week of trials on Saturday, February 11 in Wollongong, before taking on the Panthers the following week in the World Club Challenge at BlueBet Stadium.
All other teams will have two trials against NRL opposition.

The Panthers though, according to News Corp have put a new significant financial demand in front of the NRL for the game to occur.
The report suggests that the Panthers want at least $100,000 to play the match, as well as an additional $200,000 they feel they are owed for winning the 2022 grand final over the Eels. Prizemoney was cut in half compared to what teams won prior to COVID.
The NRL have already suggested that prize money for premierships and minor premierships will be raised from the start of 2023, with clubs doing the double - winning the minor premiership and premiership - able to earn up to $1 million.
But Penrith want extra for what they have won, and want to ensure the compensation and prize money for the World Club Challenge is on par with expectations.
Penrith CEO Brian Fletcher said the club are yet to sign off on the game.
“We are waiting on details from Andrew Abdo – we haven't signed off on the game,” Fletcher said.
“Andrew said we would be playing for prizemoney and we are waiting to hear what it is. We have to hear back from him before we make a decision. It's in Andrew's court.
“It will replace our second trial against Parramatta at home. We have to make sure we are replaced financially.”
Baffingly, the Panthers will play the Eels during the first week of the trials at the foot of the mountains, although the Eels have been listed as the home team.
