2017 Downer NRL Auckland Nines team jerseys revealed

NRL clubs today revealed their playing strip for the first Rugby League tournament in 2017 – the Downer NRL Auckland Nines.

Player representatives from every NRL club gathered in the Heroes and Legends Museum at Rugby League Central this morning to reveal their jerseys, with anticipation growing for the carnival-type atmosphere that the Nines entails.

NRL Head of Football Brian Canavan said the Nines was a fantastic occasion for players and fans alike and confirmed tickets were still available for fans wanting to witness all 16 NRL teams on the one stage over a two-day tournament.

“The Downer NRL Auckland Nines has been a fantastic start to our rugby league calendar for the past three years and each year, the atmosphere and rugby league on display has been bigger and better,” Mr Canavan said.

“With the likes of Johnathan Thurston, Shaun Johnson and Jarryd Hayne already confirmed for next year’s tournament, I have no doubt that we are in for another entertaining weekend of rugby league with plenty of opportunities to see some of your favourite players.”

The 2017 Downer Auckland Nines will be played on the weekend of 4-5 February at Eden Park in Auckland.

Tickets are on sale now at www.nrl.com/tickets and travel packages are on sale at www.sportsnetholidays.com/nines
