    NZRL: Mid-Year Tests unlikely, look to play Tonga in October

    There’s supposed to be a World Cup in England, hopefully that can still go ahead. If not I’ve seen it mentioned there will be “local” tournaments organised instead.

    Maroons team for the successful 2021 Origin series

    Jeez that depth is bad, even considering injuries & resting. What’s going on with the development systems in Queensland? Those numbers seem very low. New Zealand and some of the Pacific Islands would have more eligible players than that.

    Yes.

    Maroons team for the successful 2021 Origin series

    Options for centre? Tabuai-Fidow, Kris, Tuala.. Chambers?.. I’d be tempted to give HTF a spot and move Capewell to bench. Gagai probably has to stay due to lack of other options. Holmes, Brimson or Ponga ever player any centre?

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    For 6 games a year? Or will Cronulla commit to playing there as well?

    The Game Future NRL Stadiums part II

    So is this an option for big Cowboys games going forward or does it have to be a huge event like Origin to make it worthwhile? With 2 weeks notice surely a Cowboys home prelim would have as many temp stands added as possible.

    Origin in Townsville - Game 3 in NSW a "Financial disaster"

    2022 is locked for Perth. Neutral venue for the 3rd game should absolutely stay, nothing to do with ‘deserving it’. Having a 2-1 home advantage every year makes every series unfair to one side. It should be Townsville & Newcastle as one offs due to the circumstances then back to...

    They should wedge Newcastle in there in 2024 or whenever the next available year is if it has changed as mentioned above. Then return to the neutral venues after that.

    Origin in Townsville - Game 3 in NSW a "Financial disaster"

    Yeh I’d like to see them go that way because it will never happen under normal circumstances. Repay the favour in 2024 in Newcastle then go back to the neutral games starting 2025 in Melbourne.

    Origin in Townsville - Game 3 in NSW a "Financial disaster"

    Is it really either any more? The last 2/1 split was in 2017 and it will be 2024 before it’s a possibility again. For the record 2017 was a Queensland 2 game year, so is it odd years Queensland or should NSW get it because QLD had the last 2 home game series? This should be the 4th straight...

    News Coronavirus and NRL

    Surely they have to make a call Monday, plenty of people will have flights/accom booked not to mention all the tickets sold and people needing to plan around it even the locals. Even if Melbourne does come out of lockdown after 7 days I doubt much of a crowd will be allowed within days of it...

    NZRL: Mid-Year Tests unlikely, look to play Tonga in October

    Disappointing the rep weekend this year won’t have internationals, even considering all circumstances it’s pretty lazy to not even attempt a double/triple header in Sydney. NZ, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji and PNG would all be able to put out teams 90-100% full strength with players based in Australia...

    Maroons team for the successful 2021 Origin series

    I’d honestly go Walker or Walsh over Norman.
