    We always go on about keeping games at the traditional grounds, but the NRL really missed a golden opportunity this week.

    Round 1 was a dud when you look at the crowds because nearly all of the games were in Sydney.
    However, this week with the Easter Show on and with that comes public transport that services the whole of Sydney (quite well), why didn't the NRL showcase Rugby League every day from Thursday to Easter Monday at the Stadium. They only have two games which will attract good crowds.Tickets could have incorporated Easter show entry or vice a versa which includes public transport. That would have been 5 games where all Sydney fans would have gone and be available to the country/interstate visitors. Fox could have still had their Monday night game (somewhere else) and Channel Nine could have Brisbane in Brisbane on a Friday night and the 8th game could have been in a far away place, like NZ, Perth, Townsville or Melbourne.

    Because its a TV Show :mad:

    Afternoon games don't meet the required 'prime time' slot for Nine and Fox.
