just on that particular one, not sure how they've come up with the Titans having a harder draw than Manly

p.s. the nine reporting of the draw's toughness seems to be the outlier. the rest have unanimously said we have the toughest draw

We barely have to travel with 18 of 24 games in QLD, 14 of those in Brisbane, one 5 day turnaround, a favorable Origin period, two byes before an Origin match and a bye in the last month of the regular season.

If we have an issue with playing top 8 teams then what's the point of trying to reach the finals? I don't mind the draw.

It’s curious how the cows always receive ridiculously easy draws. Do they just not rate well or something?
And now the dolphins... who woulda thought a NSWRL puppet club would receive benefits

Here are the teams we play twice from last year's top 8:

PANTHERS
COWBOYS
RAIDERS
EELS
RABBITOHS
STORM

Here are the teams we play twice from 2021's top 8:

PANTHERS
TITANS
EELS
RABBITOHS
STORM

The moral being: last year's top 8 won't be next year's top 8. For starters, we'll be there.

It's because no one gives a shit about the cowboys so they just get the dregs after they've put all the higher tv rating clubs against each other

The Cowboys, Titans and now the Dolphins will always play each other twice. Do the top 8 maths on that.

Love how Channel 9 was bashing the Broncos easy draw last night, now are on the 'Nightmare for Kev' train. Pandering to the dipshit supporters of other clubs believing their garbage last night now pushing for the Broncos clicks today..

The draws ridiculous, we consistently end up with the hardest draw in terms of previous years ladder.

This is an AWESOME draw! Lots of qld games, and byes in the right spots. We should build up a nice lead on the ladder early so we can rest our team during the 2nd storm game before the finals.

Draw difficulties are all bullshit anyway. The top 4 (or even 8) from last year isn't going to be the same as this year, so it doesn't matter.

We should 100% be undefeated in those first 10 rounds.

North Qld is sparsely populated and NSW based fans wouldn't be interested in a team located in the far north of "redneck" land. Their TV ratings wouldn't be that high.

That is a horror home stretch. If the Broncos aren't at least 11-6 heading into this, then it will be another season which doesn't involve post season play. But rumour has it that they will be in fact be 17-0 and would have already clinched a playoff spot.

Totally pissed at the thought that, on 24th March, our lads will be sitting in the Suncorp visitors dressing room while a bunch of Redcliffe Dustbins has-beens and rejects lord it up in the home dressing room. Then just to rub it in we have to play them at the friggin' Gabba ffs. The hate is strong in this one.

2 draws before origin yes.... but warriors before an origin game is a deadset set up. "Traditionally what teams have the least and the most origin input then let's get them to play when it's the most origin effected".

Good news is its before origin 1 so broncos players will inevitably get overlooked irregardless of form because "loyalty*"

* = dependent on nrl club you play for eg coates/tuilagi/Oates
