Not sure the warriors ever took that many games away in the first place. If you exclude the games at eden park, there was what a total of 2? The rest were all home games for someone else werent they?The negative is obvious, that run of away games against tough sides but on the positive our home games are all at Mt Smart. Taking home games away to Dunedin/Taranaki etc in the past was hurting us so I'm happy enough to see they've put an end to that at least for now..
Brisbane still has the most free-to-air games with 16 - but their matches on a Thursday or Friday night have dropped from 18 to 13.
Eleven teams have 10 free-to-air matches or more, while Auckland will have five and Newcastle four of the mostly unpopular Friday 6pm timeslot.
The Warriors have just one free-to-air game, while last year's wooden-spooners Newcastle will have two.

Sydney derbies dominate 'fairer' 2018 NRL draw - Scott Bailey - AAP - Thursday, 19 October 2017
Man am i glad i have a way of watching without having to go back to foxtel.
another point in the article was about the 4 teams that travel the least.
A focus on Sydney derbies means the likes of St George Illawarra, Sydney Roosters and Canterbury only play outside NSW four times all season.
* The Roosters do not leave Sydney until round 10, while they only leave Sydney once over their closing seven games -- away to Canberra in round 23

So with 2018 NRL Draw now out what is everybody's prediction for next year ?
So I have NZ Warriors winning 6 of our 25 games, losing 18 of them and drawing 1 giving us 15 premiership points on ladder when you include the bye.
Yeah really don't want to say it guys but I think we're going to get wooden spoon next year. Which is sort of ironic considering how alot of the times this year I would of rather jammed a large wooden spoon up my ass than watch a NZ Warriors game as it's kind of pain I would rather inflict on myself ...
