    This is proof that the NRL is No Real Leadership.

    Dumb scheduling again.

    Friday should have been Easts v Cronulla

    Saturday Brisbane v St George
    Melbourne v Souths

    Sunday Penrith v Warriors

    In the old days it would have been
    Roosters v Warriors
    Melbourne v St George
    Souths v Brisbane
    Sharks v Panthers

    3 games in Sydney!

    Yes but if there weren’t 90,000 people 500m away which means traffic chaos, no car parking and packed trains/trams, then perhaps another 5k would go.

    5 day turn around. Same reason Broncos/Dragons isn't Friday.

    There are things called time zones
    Penrith vs Warriors is at 7:30 pm NZ time
    All Blacks vs Pumas is at 5:30 pm NZ time

    If anything the timing is ideal for NZ TV

    They should just do a double header in Sydney at ANZ on the Saturday or even Sunday if your scared of AFL. Roosters will winge about playing there but Penrith do aswell. Plus Out of Roosters/Sharks/Penrith/Warriors the Roosters even in Sydney would have the least fans turn up

    If Cecchin is refing the game on Friday Storm will win.

    With NAS still probably out and Chambers definitely out we have a chance.

    Last time we beat them 30-20 a few weeks ago and that was without GI or Jenko.

    Croft may struggle too. The Storm seem more vulnerable compared to last year though!

    Try getting the train or tram

    It’s a 5 minute walk at most ffs

    It’s not like the game is up against two powerhouses it’s Melbourne vs Geelong.

    The AFL game won’t have a single impact on numbers over at AAMI

    I suppose they gave the Warriors the early game on Saturday so it’s not too late NZ time & people would watch.

    Trouble is, no one will watch anyway with the All Blacks on at the same time.

    Should be played 7pm Friday.
