So you are saying we'll win the 24 rounds, plus weeks 1 and 3 of the finals. What happens on 2 October?
I've been a member since 2012. We last played finals football in 2011. Just saying...

Are Souffs taking the home game to the SCG?

I wonder how the Bulldogs will come out after a disappointing season this year, remember what they did to Manly last year in the first round?
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

I think it is a good time to get the Dogs.

New halves combo who are young, new fullback and Pritchard who usually doesn't switch on until round 10 or so

What's the deal with the Dragons being on the road for the first four weeks and six of the first seven? And the Storm playing at home in eight of their first eleven games, and then being on the road for four games in a row from rounds 15-19? This draw seems to have been made by amateurs!

Hi everyone

I just hope we don't get the Monday Night game in the first round again next year.

We wait so long for the season to start, and then have to wait another three days!!

Scratch that. Just read an article where it says the Dragons requested to have most of their early games away from home due to renovations. But that doesn't explain the favouritism the Storm have received.

Having a look at the other games for the weekend i feel it will be on the monday sadly.

Friday

Brisbane Broncos vs. North Queensland Cowboys
Sydney Roosters vs. South Sydney Rabbitohs

Saturday

Penrith Panthers vs. Newcastle Knights
Warriors vs. Parramatta Eels
Canberra Raiders vs. Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks

Sunday

Melbourne Storm vs. Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles
Gold Coast Titans vs. St George-Illawarra Dragons

Monday

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs vs. Wests Tigers

We will definetly see the queensland and sydney derbies on friday and they will show the premiers on channel 9 as well meaning sunday.

i think the only possible change for us would be the chance that melbourne manly could be on a monday instead but by the looks of things we'll play on monday

I think that Roosters vs Rabbits will be the Sunday arvo Channel 9 match like it was this year.
Either Titans vs Dragons or Manly vs Melbourne the other Friday night.
But I agree that we will be the Monday night match.. ahh well at leat we almost always win on a monday.
Either way its a great first round if you ask me.

In a perfect world sure it would be ideal to have a home & away system but its just not realistic.
For 1.The players association are already trying to reduce the rounds from 26 to 24 because of player fatigue especially to rep players
2.We have a finals series.If it went for 32 rounds we would still be going into november. soccer don't have a final series & even though they play up to 5 different comps they have squads of 30 players,endless amounts of money & most importantly they don't have to compete with other sports.
3.The four nations would not end until January so no off season for the top players.
Sorry Blackpearl it just would not work

Besides that im satisfied with our draw.Prediction 38pts minor prems :sign:
Theres 16 teams and therefore only 30 rounds needed to play home and away against every team twice.
The trial match period ( a three week block next year going from the weekends Feb 10/11/12 thru to feb 25/26 ) usually begins four weeks before the commencement of the season....4 weeks trial period plus 26 weeks of the season and you have your 30 rounds reqd to play everyone twice..
It works quite easily.

Agree with Ink and Pearl on this one...

No reason why each side can't play each other twice....
I hate South Sydney.... immensely

I couldn't imagine the NRL would have us on Monday night 3 years running, could they?

Dogs/Tigers games are generally free-to-air, the only game that wasn't televised on 9 for memory was the game in '08 where we flogged them by 50, remember that Dogs fans ;)
With Wests in the finals, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE

Except Australia. None of the AFL, NRL or the new super dooper 15 Rugby play each other twice.

I don't support a longer season where each teams plays each other twice. We'd have no players left come round 30.

I'm with Tigergran about not having a Monday night game in round 1. i hate having till wait till Monday night.

Re Melbourne having a lot of home games at the front end of the year (I'm not convinced that is an advantage as they will play so many away games at the end of the year) - I'm thinking it was done so that the NRL will go head to head with the new rugby franchise in the 15's Rugby. I guess they think by having the strom play there nearly every week they will not lose any storm fans to rugby (it's all rugby to those mexicans).

Will be interesting to see what day we have the home game vs the Broncos (Easter and ANZAC weekend)...they'll probably have the Storm on the Fri arvo again like last year (no AFL on Good Friday), Roosters v Drags will be the Mon (ANZAC Day) arvo, and Dogs v Souths is generally the Monday night (Easter Monday...which is also ANZAC day...anyone else confused?)
