We play 3 of the top 5 from last year in the first 4 rounds. Pretty rough *edit

I was at Dogs v Eels in round one and both were terrible. The Eels have a lot of improvement no doubt since then so will be tough. The Dogs impressed with their defence and spirit but that's about all.
We should win both!

Also not a surprise for Parra to be handed a reasonable draw.


Eels: Broncos, Tigers, Panthers, Bulldogs, Sea Eagles.

Not only do they get to host matches at their genuine home ground, they don’t have to face competition heavyweights the Roosters, Rabbitohs, Melbourne or Canberra twice. Their dream draw is based more on who they don’t play twice, rather than who they do.

Teams we’ll play twice as per the Telegraph. Draw officially released tomorrow!

Sea Eagles: Storm, Eels, Knights, Warriors, Bulldogs
Pretty good IMO, should get 8 points off warriors and dogs.

Love to know what Uncle Nick has done to upset Vlandy's

Roosters: Storm, Broncos, Dragons, Rabbitohs, Raiders

On top of points not being reset and the SCG not being used as one of the venues.
Got to love things not going the Roosters way for once.
Seems like Uncle Nick has tried to flex on Vlandys and has gotten the opposite reaction he is used to, refreshing.

Yes, at least, if we make the finals. 2 times in the regular season and at least once in the finals.
That's pretty normal.

With this draw we can win this new comp. Of course and as predicted by many parra has the easiest draw.
We play warriors knights dogs twice... that's 12 points right there. Eels will be hard because the nrl wants them to win. Ahhh this time next week we are back! Finally the maroon and white will be back

Unlike the Eels , a dream run for them.
Seeing the extended draw and as you've been saying, it's like the nrl are desperate for parra to win.

Bog easy draw, home games at the actual home ground.... plenty of away games at their home ground and a shortened season.

If they don't get it this year they may have to resort to their often used play book of overpaying for a ton of players but magically staying under the cap. And then the nrl can help them out like cronulla who were totally cap compliant in the GF winning year but over in the years before and after it.

I'd like to sit in on the draw creating meetings. Just to see how manipulated it is.

2020 NRL draw: Full home-and-away fixtures, who will your team play twice?
Michael Carayannis, The Daily Telegraph
May 20, 2020 9:00pm

Parramatta’s path to the club’s first premiership win in 34 years has been given a huge boost with the Eels the big winners of the NRL’s revamped draw that will be announced on Thursday.
The Eels are among the fortunate clubs to avoid playing title contenders Melbourne, Canberra and the Roosters twice in the condensed NRL season.
They already have the added advantage of being one of a handful of teams to play matches at their genuine home ground and will also play a host of “away” games at Bankwest Stadium too.

The Eels are grouped to play Brisbane, Wests Tigers, Penrith, Canterbury and Manly twice this year with The Daily Telegraph obtaining each team’s double-up matches.
While the road to glory for the Roosters to secure an elusive third consecutive premiership has been made even more difficult with the club arguably handed the most difficult draw of any side.
The Roosters – who are winless from the opening two games of a shortened season – must play the Storm, Broncos, Raiders, Rabbitohs and the Dragons twice this year.
It makes their return game against South Sydney on Friday week crucial already for their top four hopes.

Melbourne have also been handed a tough path to the top of the table with double-up games against the Roosters, South Sydney, Newcastle, Canberra and Manly.
The winless Sharks have been gifted arguably the most favourable draw. They are one of only two teams to play the Titans and Warriors twice – whom many predict will compete for the wooden spoon. They also play neighbours St George Illawarra, North Queensland and Penrith twice.
Premiership favourites Canberra are the only other side with the Warriors/Titans double but their draw is evened out with tough games against Melbourne and the Roosters. They will play the Dragons twice too. Canberra’s anti-vaccination players won’t be able to play in Queensland unless the government eases its tough biosecurity policy.
Penrith is another club who would have liked what they got told yesterday with matches against Parramatta, North Queensland, Sharks, Tigers and the Warriors.
The NRL will announce the full draw at 4pm on Thursday but clubs were given a sneak peak on Wednesday when they were handed their matches for the rest of this season.
Teams will play everyone at least once in the 20-round season. Some teams may still play rivals twice before they have even played all other 15 clubs.
The focus of the five double-up matches has been on blockbuster rivalry games to help appease the game’s broadcast partners.
That has counted against a high-drawing club such as Canterbury with the Bulldogs grouped in Sydney-only derbies against the Dragons, Parramatta, Tigers, South Sydney and Manly.
Venues for the first nine rounds will also be announced on Thursday, with the NRL hopeful of allowing teams to play at the genuine home grounds from the midpoint of the season. Bankwest Stadium will house five clubs; Parramatta, South Sydney, Cronulla, Canterbury and the Roosters while Campbelltown Stadium will be the temporary home for St George Illawarra, Wests Tigers, Canberra and Penrith.
Newcastle, Manly and the Warriors will play out of the Central Coast while Brisbane, North Queensland and Melbourne are allowed to play at their home venues. Gold Coast will play at Suncorp Stadium.
