I'm a bit surprised the Sharks will be at Pointsbet Round 2. I assumed the first few games would be away.

6 Storm home games in the first 9 rounds, guess it's good to get them out of the way in case we have another locked down winter.

Bit late on this (maybe) - Is Oz Stadium the new name for Stadium Australia?

EDIT: No, just either some lazy editing or trolling from PENRITH. Still Stadium Australia for now.

Or a making up for lost time - how many Storm matches were actually played in Melbourne over 2020 and 2021? Either way, a good move.

Are there records kept on the longest gap between two teams facing each other while still in the same competition? I reckon Raiders vs Tigers in round 1 2021 and round 25 2022 would come pretty close.

That would have to be a record unless the same thing happened in the old round 26 days

Ironically, we played Wests in round 2 2021 and won't play them again until round 23 2022

Bizarre

List of clubs by the amount of games against top 8 and top 8 sides from 2021 ordered highest to lowest in respect to games against top 8 teams

Broncos - 6 14
Eels - 8 13
Roosters - 8 13
Dogs - 7 13
Raiders - 7 13
Warriors - 7 12
Sharks - 6 12
Storm - 6 12
Penrith - 5 12
Manly - 4 12
Knights - 6 11
Tigers - 6 11
Dragons - 5 11
Souths - 5 11
Cowboys - 5 11
Titans - 5 10

Based on that metric, Parra and roosters with the toughest draw being the only teams to play every top 4 team twice. Storm also max out on potential top 4 opponents at 6 given they can't play themselves.

Souths have a very soft draw for a top 4 team.

Parra v PENRITH - Round 1 2002 and then Round 26 2003
