The 2014 @NRL season is upon us! It all kicks off with a classic blockbuster clash between two of the League’s foundation clubs and oldest rivals, as the Rabbitohs take on the the reigning premiers Roosters on Thursday 6 March at @ANZStadium.

Talk about an epic start to an engrossing rivalry round!

While we’d all love to be at the game sharing the match day experience with friends, family, club members and fans, there’s no better place to recreate that thrilling stadium experience than on Twitter. With clubs, players and the @NRL itself bringing fans closer to the action than ever before, you won’t miss a thing.

Whether it’s photos from within the inner sanctum, insights from your favourite players, Vine videos from the training paddock or live scores, stats and fantasy updates, we’ll make sure you see all the action.

To get the #NRL Season underway, the @NRL have some great Twitter Lists helping you find all the best accounts. You can discover your favourite club or player and enjoy all their updates throughout the season.

You may also like to discover all the clubs and players via our NRL Discovery page.

Not only do we have an amazing @NRL season ahead of us, there’s also the #Origin series and an International #AUSvNZ Test in the middle of the year.

In 2013, #Origin was one of the most tweeted about events in Australia. Athletes and celebrities from all over the world enjoyed live tweeting one of the fiercest rivalries in world sport:
