By far the best part of this weird season has been the fact that we could have consistent week in and week out footy without Origin ruining 6 weeks of club footy. Every year certain teams are handicapped by losing key players to Origin or by being screwed on byes. Club footy has been better for not having Origin to disrupt it. And now we get to focus on Origin without club footy detracting from it. Both forms of the game are better off with this year's schedule. Yes I know some people will say the non finals players are disadvantaged by not being match fit for Origin but who cares. Their fault for not being good enough. It's a very small negative up against the much bigger positives. Which format do your prefer?
