Stan Sport has confirmed they will be the exclusive broadcaster of Japan's premier rugby competition, now known as the Japan Rugby League One.
Replacing the Top League, it will feature twelve teams split into two conferences, with Stan Sport set to show two games per week.
Their coverage will commence on January 8 with Samu Kerevi's Suntory taking on local rivals Toshiba Brave Lupus Tokyo.
Former Wallaby Bernard Foley and Kubota Spears headline their coverage for round two as he faces off against former teammates Israel Folau and Liam Gill.
Wallabies and Rebels fans will get their first look at Marika Koroibete in new colours with reigning champions Saitama Wild Knights on January 29 when he faces Aaron Cruden and the Kobe Steelers.
Fellow former Rebel Isi Naisarani will feature for Shizuoka Blue Revs, facing Folau and Gill in round ten on March 13.
The inaugural season of Japanese Rugby League One will see teams in Division One play the five other teams in their conference twice in a home and away format, along with six teams outside their conference.
