    Re: Rounds 12 & 13 Schedule

    Here's a good example of the stupidity of NRL scheduling.

    First week of August I have a week long conference on the beaches - wedged between two Manly home games.  Discount flight windows come and go, I'd like (and will soon need) to have my flights finalised, but if I wait on the NRL scheduling to see if either of the Manly games are close enough to the conference to countenance me to stay on, it will be mid to late June before I can finalise that trip.

    I wonder if the NRL is the only top flight competition in the world where scheduling like this is so random and inconvenient?

    EPL postpones games at the drop of a hat Matas.

    I'm not saying you don't have a point, you do, but there are plenty of sporting organisations that do it, often those that have sold their souls to TV or a naming rights sponsor.

    I do believe that I will be in attendance at the Manly v Broncos game down there.

      Only in extreme circumstances, such as extreme weather or a club is alive in multiple competitions and need some relief on workload.  I think you'll find very few EPL championship games are deferred and they are programmed well in advance.

    IF anything, Manly v Broncos at home should pull a good tv audience. 

    Interesting though, round 13 has no QLD game for friday night??  Instead we have the Gus/Ch9 loving Tigers against the failing-so-far Bulldogs

    The EPL is programed well in advance yes - the season draw is published at the start of the year and only changes due to cup football (europe etc)

    All that said they do shift to make things better for TV (Sky Super Sunday etc)

    have another look Matas and lsz, if a team is playing and they have 1 player involved in an international they (generally) defer it as well.

    and you have both mentioned other examples of postponements.

    International games are played on scheduled FIFA interational days (the problem with the A league is that they do not schedule around it...)

    The are worked out years in advance
