Top flight rugby league will be coming to Fremantle this week with the local Fremantle Roosters rugby league club hosting the reigning NRL premiers the Sydney Roosters and the New Zealand Warriors.

The two clubs will be using Ken Allen Field in Beaconsfield as their base as they prepare for the NRL Nines tournament at Perth Oval this weekend.

The Sydney Roosters will be holding a junior clinic from 4.30-6pm on Wednesday 12 February and their men’s and women’s teams an open training session on Thursday 13 February at 2pm.

Roosters’ coaches Nathan Cayless and Matt King will also be hosting a Q&A Coaches Forum in the Club Room from 5-5.45pm on Wednesday.

The Warriors men will be holding an open training on Thursday from 11am-12pm, while the Warriors women will be holding an open training session from 4-5pm on Thursday.

Fremantle Roosters Senior President Steve Revere said it was a huge coup to have the NRL’s reigning champs coming to Fremantle.

The Sydney Roosters have won the past two NRL premierships, and are also the defending NRL Nines champions from when the tournament was last held in 2017.

Retired Sydney Swans AFL star Nick Davis will make a cross-code switch and line up with the Roosters for the Nines.

NRL Nines is a pre-season festival of rugby league and live entertainment being held at HBF Park on 14-15 February, featuring all 16 NRL and 4 NRLW teams.
