Maybe they figured we will get done in the 1st round and as we have lot of ex kiwi’s playing for us the crowd would be more supportive?

The NZ game is on the back of a 5 day turnaround too from the Easter Monday clash with Parramatta. The boys will be ready for bed come kickoff.

Yeah it's madness.

From this article on winning chances of teams coming off a 5 day turn-around.
https://www.smh.com.au/sport/nrl/fiveda ... o2f6s.html
Fairfax Media commissioned statistics provider Champion Data to crunch the numbers for all games since 2014 to determine whether backing up from the short break affected your chances of singing the team song the following week. The study, which covered a period of 96 NRL matches, shows that teams coming off a five-day break were a 45 per cent chance of winning their next game. The Wests Tigers fared the worst, winning just two of their 11 games in such circumstances, while the Broncos won all six of theirs.
It is, however, a new team and culture :pray:

Madness. For a club whose main (attainable) mantra would be Top 8, we have given up a probable 6-12 point differential by playing the maggots in NZ as opposed to LO. Stupid decision, sure the immediate $$$ are good but success (making the finals) would make us plenty more $$ and supporters in the long term.

It's ridiculous! The people that scheduled this haven't got a brain in their heads. Either that or they just want us to lose :x

Depends how much money we are getting I guess

If we found out we would get say $300 k for the game , it is good money

Anyway we have it on good authority from Geo we will go through the season as undefeated premiers so the money is just a bonus , isn't it ??

And also the Storm have never beaten the tigers in New Zealand
