The NRL is the top rugby league competitions in the world and it will soon be hitting the shores of Napier City.

The fixture is planned for May next year, with another to follow later on in the year. However the ultimate plan is to secure one NRL game every year for the next three years.

Although we can't reveal who the four teams will be right now, what we can tell you is that some of the superstars of the game will play right here at McLean Park, which has upgraded seating to cater to more than 20,000.

Part of the deal will also mean that the players will make community and schools while they are in town. Confirmation of the game dates along with the teams is set to be announced towards the end of this month.
