NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said the updated schedule aimed to give Queensland fans optimal coverage as the game takes place in the state.
“Our challenges with the league relocation have also become opportunities to provide unique fan experiences on mini magic days and it’s great for us to be able to bring the game to the regions of the Heartland rugby league,” said Abdo.
“I would like to thank the clubs and the broadcasters for their willingness to see these matches happen in Mackay and Rockhampton.
“The opportunity for a mini magic triple header at Suncorp Stadium, as well as double headers in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast will also continue to maximize the opportunities for our South East Queensland supporters to see multiple clubs and matches in one venue.
“Our two round of 20 double headers are marked by the traditional rivalry between the Broncos and Cowboys in Queensland and the big final between the Storm and the Panthers.”
