    They've been happening since early December haven't they?

    Saw a bunch be cancelled/postponed prior to Christmas due to weather

    Correct
    I know clubs don't even have a draft draw, well they didn't before Xmas anyway. I know one club found out who their round 1 opponent is but no venue day or time. And its a game where that may include multiple hours traveling time if they are away.

    Draws came out to clubs today. I have had a quick look

    Harold Matts is bizarre with 14 of the 15 teams getting byes. Some rounds there are three teams with byes.

    Makes sense to me - in previous years it was one bye per round which meant 2/3rds of the clubs got a guaranteed two points and therefore a leg-up.

    The SG Ball draw is exactly like that. 1 bye per round

    Interesting - those draws have always been relatively aligned in past years, sounds like that won't be as common in 2019.

    Although I do wonder if Matts might be phased out in the same way Connell Cup was in QLD.
