    Leaked round 1 has us playing Cronulla at home at 6pm on Friday.

    Will we end up playing all our home games at this horrendous time slot?

    Why would the NRL not give the Knights this time slot when a million people show up to it anyway?

    Looking forward to getting our annual 40-0 scoreline out of the way early against Cronulla.

    Ehhh, someone needs to fill the 6pm Friday slot.

    Ill only be pissed if we have more than other teams. But the NRL is usually pretty good in streading the shitty slots.

    I remember the old rule for Mondays was no more than 2 home games per season.

    Pretty shitty draw, two runs of three 6pm timeslots in a row.

    Get ready for that again this coming season.

    But my count (excluding Easter) we had 7 in the slot with 4 at Home.

    The away games are broadly irrelevant (just a pain to get home in time to watch it), but that many 6pm games at home is a massive brake on our crowd average.

    I’ll be surprised if we don’t get a few more channel 9 games in 2019 considering how marketable Ponga has become. Seriously he was probably the most entertaining player in the league to watch this year so why wouldn’t 9 want a piece of that.

    I’ll make my judgement once I’ve seen the whole draw.

    "It is also understood the 6pm Friday night game has proven popular with Knights corporates and is looked apon far more favourably than an early afternoon Saturday game."

    Well as long as the richies are happy...

    No need renewing my kids memberships. With their sports on saturday the only games we could get to last season were those on a Sunday and a single late season saturday. Looks like I’ll be coming down for games on my own.

    I’m stoked that we have 6 Saturday games. I generally like to drink to excess post game to forget what happened and Saturday is the most convenient time to do this.

    Still a shitty scenario for a team that pulls crowds. Shows tv money rules but I guess that is the games future.

    f**ks me off Sydney gets a heap of local derbies on Sunday that will draw a capacity of 15k.

    Guess we need to win more to be relevant again...fair.
