The current interest in Rugby League is the Four Nations, why double up on that during the tournament when it can be released after the final and give the NRL leverage all the way to early December.
You where close Raiderdaveso should the opening round look like
there was some dicussion elsewhere on who should get to open the season
some suggested the premiers the sharks

Lol NRL milking this Farah Vs Tigers bullshit for all it's worth
We whinge there's not enough build up to some games
We whinge when there is build up to some games.
The comp can become a little sterile without a bit of hype manufactured or otherwise.
The AFL has built an industry on this type of thing with every 2nd game billed as a blockbuster or grudge match.
While our fans are less gullible then those brain washed dopes south of the Murray , a bit of harmless billing is probably what the NRL needs more of.
It's geographically close to these places
- Endeavour Field
- Ronson Oval
- Caltex Field
- Shark Park
- Toyota Park
- Toyota Stadium
- LG Park
- Shark Stadium
- Southern Cross Group Stadium
Amateur hour again at the NRL. All and sundry knew the AFL draw was coming out last week, because it always comes out last week of October. In the intervening month since their GF they released titbits of the draw keeping interest up.
Meanwhile we have no clear date for a schedule release and not one single piece of information regarding the draw has been mentioned yet. Our players are back for pre-season training and no one knows where and when their first match will be. I can't think of any other professional competition in the world that does this. It is about as well organised as the shute shield draw.
It'll be out when it's out. It's been out at the end of November the last few years (I think one year it fell into December?), and Greenberg has indicated this is the case again.Please...
It's limited interest at best. If it was in Australia I may agree with you, as it stands I know a heap of people who regularly follow the NRL who aren't even aware the 4 nations is on.
There is no reason for the draw not to be out yet. You watch them release it on day one of the Adelaide test or something equally as ridiculous.
Just saw this article after posting thatHoping for selfish reasons we have an away game against the Knights in Rd 1 on a Saturday night
Expecting Sharks away Rd 1 Thursday night for some reason
Only the first round free-to-air games have been locked in at this stage.
The Cronulla Sharks will be delighted to get the opening game of the season at home to kick-off their 50-year premiership celebrations against the Broncos.
