Weird question but it's very noticeable, does NZ have some laws on lighting that make their field lighting soo shit?

Everytime the games are played in NZ it's noticeably darker, compared to any Aussie game played at Night.
 
This isn't league related but haha this is gold:


I wonder if he is salty they missed out on Payne.
 
The tipping isn't getting any easier, cowboys or manly everyone?
 
My Predictions are, Cows, Warriors, , Roosters, Dolphins (Sorry Mum your team is horrible the toothless tigers) Panthers, Storm, Knights, Raiders
 
I'm on the Cows at home but without much confidence. Basically just tipping with the punters on this one.

EDIT - Though Sharks have won 4 of the last 5, and the last 2 up north... Cows off the bye, will they be refreshed or rusty?

Convince me!
 
Would laugh if his dog took a nard on the pitch tbh
 
to stay awake and watch this or sleep for a solid 9 hours hmm

Uh I backed sharks, very unsure though..all my competition in the tipping comp backed cowboys so this could either be a masterstroke or a cockup to lose my lead
