The main game will commence at 5.30pm with matches leading up to the main game including under 16 and 18 representative games between Northern Rivers Titans and Central Coast Roosters and a Titans physical disability team exhibition match.

A full day of football at Oakes Oval

Gold Coast Titans CEO Steve Mitchell said there will be a full day of football at Oakes Oval. ‘Whether you’re a footy fan or experiencing rugby league for the first time, this will be a great spectacle.

‘Our team, led by Coach Justin Holbrook, are keen to run out onto Oakes Oval and are excited to play on such a quality surface. With the future upgrades planned by Lismore City Council to further improve the facility, Lismore will fast become a sought-after sporting destination.’
