Home Ground Advantage

Post by Don Kershane » Wed 23 May, 2018 8:46 pm

Melbourne,Brisbane,Manly, North Queensland ,Penrith , Cronulla, Roosters. Titans, Warriors, Newcastle ,Raiders have dedicated single venues.Over, say, a 3 year period to allow for poor years how many competition points advantage per year do you think this equates to compared to multiple venue clubs? My guesstimate is 6 points a season.

Melbourne played Gold Coast in Brisbane

Manly played Brisbane in Brisbane

Roosters play Gold Coast on central coast

Titans may not have a home ground in the coming weeks and have played games in Gladstone

Penrith take a game to Bathurst

So not all those teams have a single home ground.

Teams that have to rely on home ground advantage to win games have got a problem bigger than having Mitch Moses on the roster. Good teams can win anywhere .

Good post and good question.

This should not be a hard question to answer. We just need to compare the teams win/loss record with home and away games. If the Multi home ground teams have less of a home advantage then we can get a better Guestimate.

Ofcourse some of these clubs sacrifice an occasional game. Meh they mostly play on their own grounds. To exclude the sacrificed games could be a little hard....

Thats not quite right - yes teams shouldn't just rely on home ground wins but having a fortress mentality at home is definitely an advantage - Wests in 1978 set themselves to not lose a game at Lidcombe which they achieved - the outcome was they finished minor premiers. Yea they also had to win games away but the fact they won all their home games gave them that added confidence.

The info is all on wikipedia,Very detailed ,take a bit of time to calculate. Interesting in 2014 Dale Copley easily Broncos top try scorer . Broncos being first club I looked at. Will attempt to work out figures next rainy day (which could be months away.)
