Does anyone know when the draw will be released.............thanks
After the RLWC, early December was the last quote from D Smith
They're just finalising that Souths have every Friday night NSW game and Brisbane have every Friday night QLD game.
Here's a radical idea. I hate the off season. Why not make the season 50 weeks long, but teams only play once a fortnight. No short turnarounds, night games in warmer months.
If you played once a fortnight then some of the final series matches would have only one team - the other would have played the previous week.
That's just nitpicking.
That's the easy part. The hard part is to fit Manly into as many Monday nights as they could whilst still giving us as many short 5 day turnarounds without giving us any Fri night or Sunday arvo blockbusters at home. It's a real juggling act.
I hope the Shenzhen match isn't a Monday night. I have to work and there's no direct bus route.
Can't wait for the draw i wan't to see if we play more than 5 games at brookie.
10 game minimum is part of the MSE Constitution for Brookie games.
Our Chinese fans are notorious for not crossing the Yangtze to attend a match.

So now we know that we have the following: Round 1: Melbourne in Melbourne Round 2: Souffs at Bluetongue Round 4: Chooks at Allianz And all the media can say is how tough souffs start to the season is. After last years GF debacle and the way we are treated by the NRL I'm not sure I'll be watching much footy this year.
according to the nrl website we manly are hosting the storm [hr] The 2014 NRL season will kick off with a string of Round 1 blockbusters, with Ben Barba returning to ANZ Stadium to face his old club the Bulldogs and old foes Manly and Melbourne reigniting the 'Battle of Brookvale'.

The Australian has Hoppa Jr's Eels meeting Manly at Brookie in Rd 3 Sunday.
Let's see if we play every game on Monday night this year. need lots of 2pm sunday and 7.30 saturday games, avoiding channel nine coverages all together.
