    Home:
    2011: no game v Cronulla, St. George, Gold Coast
    2012: no game v Cronulla, Cowboys, Souths

    Away:
    2011: no game v Canberra, Tigers, Warriors
    2012: no game v Canberra, Tigers, Melbourne

    Home & Away stats:
    * 2nd year in a row no Cronulla home - bit odd
    * 4th year in a row no Canberra away - totally bizarre
    * 2nd year in a row no Tigers away - appalling no Leichhardt classic game and huge crowd misses out once again
    * 2nd year in a row no home game in 1st rd or last rd
    * Assuming rd 2 Tigers home is at Gosford - that means no Brookie home until rd 6 - why is something actually happening at Brookie???
    * In 2012 no Melbourne away - that's a pretty fortunate one! (and perhaps not going to NZ in 2011 wasn't bad either in hindsight).

    In Aug we play consecutive home games v Newc and Bris - logic says huge chance either Newc goes to Gosford or Bris goes to Suncorp - but that would mean that after July only 1 remaining Brookie game for rest of season! In 2011 we had 3 Brookie games in Aug.

    Home games per month:
    2011: Mar-1, Apr-2, May-1, Jun-2, July-1, Aug-3
    (total 10 - plus May in Bris, July in Gosford)
    2012: Mar-0?, Apr-2, May-2, June-2, July-3, Aug-1?
    (total 10? - plus Mar in Gosford?, Aug in Gosford or Bris?)

    Summary:
    Assuming the Aug guess above is correct, I'd be very happy to have 5 Brookie home games in mid winter June-July (2 more than 2011), although it could mean a very odd situation of just 1 Brookie home game in Aug which would be a very tough run home (compared to 3 Brookie home games in Aug 2011).

    But surely the oddest part of the draw is that the 2011 Premiers do not run onto their Brookie home ground until rd 6 - why?????

    MELBOURNE Storm has been presented with what appears to be a comfortable introduction to the 2012 NRL season.

    The club does not meet a final eight side from last season until the fifth round - Newcastle Knights - with five of its first eight matches at home.
