    Could it be a success? Since it will be a Thursday next year, have all the previous round on the Saturday so every team will have a 5-day turnaround.

    Public holiday and no Broncos matches, could be a recipe for some good crowds.

    Not such a bad idea. Personally I'd make a PNG Hunters v Townsville Blackhawks a featured TV game at 2pm ( to lead into the NRL game). Played in TSV and promoting the Fuzzy Wuzzies / Kokada Track angle with the military community of Townsville heavily involved. Game ball delivered via Blackhawk ;)

    The above is a great idea!

    Another way to go would to play a double header with a game each from the QRL/NSWRL while getting both PNG and NZ involved. Play it at Burleigh so plenty of the punters frown Currumbin can make their alway down. Run free buses to and from the Currumbin RSL.
