The booming number of fans signing up to be Club Members can begin planning for an enthralling opening to the 2012 Telstra Premiership with the NRL today announcing the dates and times of matches for the first five rounds, plus the venues for all matches this season.

As thousands of people continue to vote for the NRL All Stars team to launch the 2012 season against the Indigenous All Stars on the Gold Coast on February 4, the release of the schedule for the first five rounds is a reminder that the start of the 2012 Telstra Premiership is fast approaching.

“There’s only two months now until the All Stars kicks off the 2012 season and the release of the first five rounds and venues today gives fans the chance to start their planning for the upcoming season,” NRL Chief Executive, Mr David Gallop, said.

“It’s also a timely reminder that, with Christmas fast approaching, it’s a great time to buy a membership and be part of your team in 2012.”

Please note, the venue for St George Illawarra’s home matches will be confirmed once the Illawarra Venue Authority (IVA) is able to provide the club with details as to the availability of WIN Stadium, Wollongong, in 2012.
