NRL 2019 draw: Every club’s schedule graded from toughest to most favourable

How does YOUR team’s schedule look in 2019?

Source: FOX SPORTS
WE are only four weeks removed from the 2018 grand final but the release of next season’s NRL draw gives fans of all 16 teams a renewed sense of optimism.

But that depends on who you support — and who they’re up against in 2019.

Foxsports.com.au has calculated each club’s strength (or ease) of schedule for the whole season. This is determined by giving every team a score based on their final-round ladder position in 2018, then grading every single match-up across 25 rounds in 2019.

The Roosters finished first and are graded 16 — the toughest possible opponent; the wooden-spoon Eels are graded 1 — the most favourable opponent. Therefore the club with the highest cumulative ‘score’ across 25 rounds has the most difficult schedule; likewise the lowest score presents the most comfortable schedule.

This isn’t scientific and doesn’t take into account a whole range of variables, but it gives us an early glimpse at the run each team faces through 25 rounds. For instance, the Eels and Cowboys could arguably bounce back strongly in 2019, while the Roosters would try to defy history and become the first club in 21 years to win back to back titles.

There are also other factors: injuries; form; consecutive games against strong or weak teams; and the Origin period.

But let’s get to it, ranking each team from worst to first. Which team has the least favourable schedule, and whose draw presents the best opportunity to start planning for September 2019?

16. Cowboys (218 schedule strength grade)

15. Bulldogs (216)

14. Titans (215)

13. Warriors (210)

=10. Eels (209)

=10. Panthers (209)

=10. Raiders (209)

9. Roosters (208)

8. Sea Eagles (207)

7. Broncos (205)

6. Rabbitohs (199)

5. Knights (196)

=3. Sharks (195)

=3. Tigers (195)

2. Storm (191)

1. Dragons (190)

Panthers at Suncorp round 9?
First WSS home game not till round 13?
Round 9 is the magic round, all games played at suncorp across the weekend. Should be a good time
Hmmm - except we lose a home game because of it.
Silly you all , Suncorp is our 12th home ground

At least we won't have as many captains as home grounds with Madge taking over

Just hope we have more total wins for the season ......... something tells me 10 wins might be pushing the friendship in 2019
Short memory Happy?
I’m sure it was Madge that implemented the everyone’s a Captain setup at South Sydney.
Settling at Michael Crocker the following season only not to be used in first grade from about round 8 onwards.
I’m expecting more of the same...

5 Thursday night games is a joke. Might be good for tv ratings but it’s a rubbish draw for the fans
That IS a joke, we get 20% of thurs games and 15 other teams share the other 80%

Brisbane playing as the away team at their home ground, now we know why they called it magic weekend, home team suddenly becomes away tem - *poof* - magic, thanks Todd...Im sure they'll get pipsquek sutton giving em a leg up too
at least only 2 of those are home games..

Away games against Broncos and Storm on Thursday night bad luck if you were interested in a weekend away.

Was just looking at this with a mate and we disappointed they were both Thursday nighters.

Agree, only one Sunday game at Leichhardt again? Should be all three, are we not requesting them, or is the nrl oblivious to what a great advertisement for the game a packed Leichhardt Oval is ??

I think the spread of matches we have is good. Its not like we strike five bad weeks in a row and if we are good enough our run home is not to bad.

From a fans point of view, I think it stinks, Thursday nights, 6pm time slots, home games played away. Anyway its now up to the new coach and the team, a winning team you don't care where they play and what time they play

Looks like our bye is before Origin 1, weekend off for all teams for Origin 2, and we play the Rooster Round 16 before Origin 3 (again without their Origin players).
It's Ok we'll be without ours too..
Who are you predicting to make origin from the Tiges mate ?

Ok so Ivan has to go, but if we don't make Penrith pay up or give up some young blood then our entire board deserves to be sacked.

Players won’t even come into the equation, don’t even waste your time.

I like the draw only work 1/2 a day Thursday...easy ...Some good games at the tradition grounds this year. Can't remember the last time we played the Dogs at either..
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

2011 at Cambo. The game that ended Dwyer’s career.
