Trial match is a trial match, it makes more sense if we are going to alternate one year WT, one year Goosters to play in a CSS.

Would like to see us playing a trial further bush as well as the rural community deserve more trials
Is that whats happening now?
They owe us about 4 years worth.

Quite a coincidence :roll: someone noticed today the incorrect dates/venues on NRL.COM...and WTs releasing the official ones
What would clubs and the NRL do without fans pointing them in the right direction???

Hey Smeg, are we going to alternate home grounds each year now, or, did we just gain the home ground game this year because we actually won the Foundation Cup?

I think the purpose of holding it at the SFS was to try and gain a TV broadcast yearly and it seems that hasn't panned out so alternating one and one. But its all guesswork from me

That sounds like very plausible "guesswork". :D

I was always under the impression that the Roosters trial was at Campbelltown. Can't remember anything official from the club saying it was at Leichhardt ever. Inthinknanother forum said it was at Leichhardt and everyone took that as gospel.

Good decision to play at Campbelltown and gotta love Bluetongue twice within a month.

They took it as gospel because the Church of the NRL said it was so...

I wouldnt mind wondering down to check that out. Is it the Hull KR side or an under 20s as well?
Its a great idea having the 20s play against men, to ready them for first grade.

The trial info that has been posted on the WT website says "The first serious trial match will be held against Parra......".

OK, I'm probably clutching at straws here, but do you think that means there may still be a trial against a non-NRL team on the 4th Feb? Hope so.

There normally is a trial for the fringe players before the official NRL trials. Besides you'd feel sorry for the poor Southern Stingrays if they lost their slot.
The WT management are no doubt in negotiations with the Magpie's rally people to see if they can use one the organiser's backyard for the game...

And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Wasn't the Foundation Cup played at the SFS? And even if it wasn't, why shouldn't the game revert from Leichhardt to Campbelltown each year? That would seem fair to me and for the people of the Western Suburbs!
