I'd like to see the Doggiez recapture some of their former glory.

Before that Raelene Castle got in there & destroyed the place.

To be fair - it has had a much more inclusive ambience since that period.

I'm feeling more confident now winning our 4th in a row than i was at the same time last year to win three.

Biased - well may be LOL

However you would be brave man to suggest its unlikely to happen

Going to be hard for the Broncos to reset after the GF disaster

Only losses from the best 17 are the bench prop and star centre.

I'm sure they'll have another kid who can come into the pack off the bench hanging around and they have enough cover in the outside backs, Peachey can play centres, Turuva could slot in there and/or another kid could come in and play whichever spot Turuva doesn't, Cogger another loss but the returning Laurie will likely slot strait into that 14 role for 12 months before playing 6 if/when Luai cashes in on winning all these premierships.

It really is impressive the culture they've built out there.

The 2024 draw has been released this morning, although all of the interesting points were, as is usual in the game, "leaked" late last week.

The Vegas double header will be played a week ahead of the other round 1 games, probably fair to give these teams extra time to head home and prepare for round 2, they'll also play amongst themselves for Round 2, with Manly playing Easts on Mar 17 and Brisbane playing Souths on March 14, probably also fair given both sides face the same disadvantages.

Tigers have the round 1 bye.

Dragons to miss out on Magic Round this season.

Grand final re-match in round 3.

Rabbitohs vs Roosters in rounds 3 and 27 (for PT and JJ) which means those two will each face two other Vegas returnees in rounds 2 and 3.

Souths have byes in rounds 7, 13 and 17 this time, I look forward to JJ telling us why that is unfair.

Panthers start with Melbourne (unbeaten in round 1 since about 1342) and their bogey side (outside finals) Parramatta, they could very well head into the grand final re-match 0-2.

Broncos only play 14 of their 24 games in the SE corner this time, look out for their two headed fans telling EVERYONE how it is proof the NRL want them to lose.

I notice Las Vegas is counted as a home game for Chooks but an away game for Rabbits.

We get stitched up right from the get go.

Roosters have an away game at magic round, Souths have a home game, so it evens out.  I see your away trip to St George on ANZAC day is at Allianz, must be a missprint.  Bus trip down to Canberra, bus trip up to Newcastle, flights to Brisbane (twice) Gold Coast, Perth and Melbourne plus the Vegas jaunt, tough life.

Tigers play the Dolphins at Lang Park for an away game on April 6, the Dolphins then travel away to Lang Park to play the Tigers at Magic round.  The Titans are actually the only one of the three SE Qld teams to play magic round as a "home" game.

If you had money to sponsor an NRL side in the South East corner of QLD, why would you sponsor the Titans, with 5 FTA games and lower home attendance than the Broncos or Dolphins?

The same could be said for the Bulldogs and Tigers compared to the Eels and Panthers in Western Sydney.

The competition doesn't have true parity while some clubs are given more exposure and in turn more chance to generate income than others, but I doubt the NRL are bothered by that fact.

Well, at least the mighty Tigers will end round 1 far from the dreaded wooden spoon position. Ermm

But giving the same teams more exposure to FTA each season helps maintain the status quo.

That’s the nature of tv and tv is the driver of the games success. The  Best games must always be on FTA.

They are allocated to media outlets based on who paid how much for media rights.

NINE get 4 games a round for FTA, Fox gets all games

NINE hold the largest rights packages but Fox Kayo   have a say and the draw is made with those outlets allocations in mind.

Gotta laugh at the roosters and the silence from their fans. Their no sweetheart policy is clearly out the window Tongue

Michael Jennings a great signing

  • he was banned for three years for taking steroids

  • was ordered to pay his ex-wife $500k in damages for raping her

  • he sold all his properties and gave the money to someone else, so he could declare bankruptcy and not pay the money

Jennings a big mistake, hopefully he doesn't earn a first grade spot. Doesn't become eligible till round 11 but the Chooks have enough quality centres to not need him. Charity case by Robbo methinks.
