Ignoring all the Friday games, I actually like the draw a lot!

The first 3 home games are crackers, we only play the nuffies once, have 4 home games out of the last 5, and we finish at home with what could be a top of the ladder dispute against the dogs.

So at Suncorp we get...

Manly
Melbourne
North Queensland
South Sydney
Gold Coast
Warriors
West Tigers
Cronulla
St. George Illawarra
Parramatta
Newcastle
Canterbury-Bankstown

Really satisfied with that list, we received all our top drawing sides in fixtures where everyone should be on board. It'd be perfect if we could have got a home game against the Chooks (we've only played them once up here since 05) but otherwise I'm really content with what we got.

GC & Newcastle games are also pretty close to one another.

Definitely another bug bear, you should play every team once before you start doubling up games.

Is it actually possible to have it setup that way? I'm no statistician :P
Anyone here with a maths brain know if that's technically possible with 16 teams?

Even if it's off by a week or so it'd be more logical than the current system.

I live for the day when we have enough teams where the teams could play each other once and that would be the end of the regular season.

Do you mean more teams, say 20 with a 20 round season?
Don't know if that'll happen in the next decade.

I personally like a longer season, more games to watch!

What did everyone make of that weekend?

Personally, I liked it, was good to get a bit of a breather and give the Test match the attention it deserved. Would love it if we gave Origin the same treatment.

Agreed. Definitely would like to see that happen...

And an elimination style comp could be played during those weekends. It could feature NSW cup and Qcup teams, and possibly even NRL teams playing their reserves...

I hated it. The test match never seems to be of any real quality and frankly isn't something I look forward to with much enthusiasm. Think it would work for Origin though.

Also on test matches, I still don't know why it's not played on ANZAC day. The game would have so much more meaning if it was. At least IMO.
