hard to find the interest at the moment, warriors are same old, same old, origin brings most of the good teams to a screeching halt every 2nd weekend for 2 months.

such a crap time of the season.

Totally agree. What a downer in general for the great game as they play out their Kangaroos trial games.
Why can't it just be a single game enabling whoever to lay claim to some state bragging rights if they must. Honestly, who really cares? The whole SOO farce just randomly favours some teams over others and throws the reffing standards (ha!) into more chaos and confusion.
They're up themselves totally and it does nothing to grow the game internationally or domestically, nor provide a meaningful spectacle. Purely revenue generating on one hand while stalling the wider game on the other.

Unfortunately for us, Souths only need a win by two to go ahead of us. Parramatta need to beat the Storm to maintain a 4 point margin between 8th and 9th spot.

Hopefully, Manly beat Penrith giving us the chance to go 4 clear of them when we play next Friday

Origin is a good game to watch, but they gotta cut down how long its spread over.

3 wednesdays in a row, bang, bang, bang, those 3 weeks and the one preceeding it are the shortened bye rounds. now your down to four weekends cut short instead of six. The hype will still build, if anything will make it more intense. and the rep players are can beat the crap out of each other without being expected to play club games in between times.

And we can get on with the club competition proper sooner.

A Friday night with no Broncos game. There have been a few of those recently. We live in strange times.

Oh well at least we can watch another stacked side fill of cap cheats.:p
