    Rounds 7, 8 & 9

    I wasn't sure if I'd seen these around on the forum but the media just got their round releases. Round 7 has had changes and 9 is announced. Sorry if I'm doubling up

    Round 7
    Friday
    Tigers v Broncos @ SFS (Ch9)
    Sea Eagles v Panthers @ Brookvale (Ch9)

    Saturday
    Sharks v Cowboys @ Toyota
    Bulldogs v Rabbitohs @ ANZ

    Sunday
    Raiders v Knights @ Canberra
    Eels v Titans @ Parramatta (Ch9)

    Monday
    Roosters v Dragons @ SFS 4pm
    Storm v Warrios @ AAMI 7pm (moved at Storms request to make it a new ANZAC yearly event)

    Round 8
    Friday
    Broncos v Bulldogs @ Suncorp (Ch9)
    Rabbitohs v Sharks @ ANZ (Ch9)

    Saturday
    Titans v Roosters @ Skilled
    Storm v Knights @ AAMI
    Cowboys v Sea Eagles @ Dairy Farmers

    Sunday
    Warriors v Panthers @ Mt Smart
    Raiders v Tigers @ Canberra
    Dragons v Eels @ WIN (Ch9)

    No Monday Football this round due to Aus v NZ & City Country

    Round 9
    Friday
    Aus v NZ @ Skilled (Ch9)
    Country v City @ Albury (Ch9)

    Saturday
    Broncos v Storm @ Suncorp

    Sunday
    Titans v Warriors @ Skilled
    Dragons v Cowboys @ WIN (Ch9)

    Monday
    Sea Eagles v Raiders @ Brookvale



    Bit of a mix for us, a Friday night game on nine, Saturday at cows gives us a decent week before travel and then the Monday game is the longest rest possible after rep duties, down side is its bloody Monday night footy and it means our game against Titans at Skilled the week after can't be a Friday night game and Fox don't seem to like the Titans so I would expect the early game on Saturday or Sunday

    Dan...the way around it....go out for dinner, turn the phone OFF, come home don't check messagebank, don't check e-mails don't check the forum close the windows so the Pidgeons (with messages) can't get in, turn the telly on at 9.30pm and watch it like it's live.

    Dan, that means that it will be the FIRST game (NBN) although maybe not??....you can tune to FM 99.1 (ABC FM for that area) if in the car and they will broadcast that game live.

    Remember as an old Moree boy I know all the stations down that way!

    If you need a reminder who runs the game and for whose benefit:

    "It is believed the Broncos-Storm match originally had been scheduled for Monday night, May 9, but following submissions from Brisbane about the expected loss of revenue, the NRL opted for the Manly-Canberra match to complete the round."

    Re: Rounds 7, 8 & 9

    So it is alright for us to lose revenue, but the Broncos, who make money hand over fist don't have too. And that would be what, their first ever Monday night at home? I can't remember them having too many certainly...

    This has to stop, we need News out of the game, an IC in and frankly a second brisbane team ASAP.
