The 2019 NRL finals are about to get underway and we've got all the information you could possibly need covered right here.

When do the finals start?

The battle for the 2019 NRL premiership gets underway on Friday night with an enormous showdown between fierce rivals the Sydney Roosters, who are the defending premiers, and South Sydney. The two met in an intense clash just last week and the re-match is being held at the SCG and scheduled to kick-off at 7.50pm AEST.

There are two matches on Saturday - minor premiers Melbourne hosting the Canberra Raiders at 5.40pm and then another Sydney derby between fifth-placed Manly and the Sharks, who scraped into the finals in eighth place, at 7.50pm.

The last match of the opening around is between Parramatta and the Brisbane Broncos, the first final to be held at the plush new Bankwest Stadium, at 4.05pm on Sunday.

What is the format for the finals series?

The current format, which was implemented in 2012, offers rich rewards to teams that finish in the top four. With first playing fourth and second vs third, the winners get a week off and a ride straight into a home preliminary final. The losers get a second chance in week two.

For the remaining teams, fifth hosts the eighth-placed team and sixth faces seventh in single-game elimination matches.

To date, no team outside the top four has won a premiership under the current system, although the seventh-placed Cowboys made the grand final two years ago, knocking out the second-ranked Roosters in a preliminary final before falling short against the Storm.

Interestingly, only three minor premiers have gone on to win the premiership - the Roosters in 2013 and again last year, along with the 2017 Storm.

Who will be broadcasting the finals?

Whether you watch your footy on Nine or Nine HD, on Foxtel via their Fox League channels or on streaming service Kayo, you are well covered for the finals.

All four matches this weekend are live on every one of those options and that continues through to the penultimate round. Only the grand final is different, with Nine having exclusive rights to the big one, which will be shown on delay on pay TV.

Who do the bookmakers fancy for this year's premiership?

The home side are clear favourites in each of this weekend's finals, with one clear exception - Cronulla are short-priced favourites against the Sea Eagles, despite holding a wretched record at Brookvale Oval.

Overall, the Storm took out the minor premiership and only lost four matches all season, but aren't the favourites. That honour lies with the defending champion Roosters, with Melbourne on the second line of betting and the Raiders rounding out the top three.

South Sydney are fourth overall, ahead of the Sharks, Parramatta, injury-hit Manly and the Broncos.

Which grounds will be holding matches?

In the first three rounds, the higher-ranked team gets to play in their home city, so Melbourne's AAMI Park and Manly's Lottoland are among the grounds being used in week one.

But from the second week onwards, only grand final venue ANZ Stadium, Bankwest or the SCG can be used for Sydney clubs.

How can I buy tickets?

Ticketek are selling tickets for Roosters v Rabbitohs, Storm v Raiders and Eels v Broncos, although the latter is just about sold out at Bankwest Stadium.

Ticketmaster is the home for tickets to Lottoland, with access across all games ranging from $10 for restricted viewing through to about $75 for the best seats in the house. Manly is again the exception, where all tickets are $25 across the board. The NRL website is the place to go for all your ticketing needs.
