    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.

    Its very strange

    For example Round 1

    SG Ball

    Victoria v Manly
    West Coast v Canberra

    Norths have the bye in both

    Harold Matts

    Canberra v Manly

    The way I take it the draw revolves around who West Coast and Victoria play

    Yep looking at what you've listed there that makes perfect sense.
