Two of the NRL's undefeated teams will go head-to-head to relaunch the season on May 28.

Brisbane and Parramatta were equally as impressive in March in racking up back-to-back wins to get their 2020 Telstra Premiership campaigns off to a great start.

Parramatta head north of the border to Suncorp Stadium for the first match-up between the teams since their finals clash last year. The Broncos have their first opportunity to exact revenge for their 58-0 thrashing at the hands of the Eels in the playoffs.
