    Its is good. Pity its not a 6 week comp of rounds as it was planned.
    Will also be interesting considering many won't be playing in state comps. The NSW HNWP will start but will only be 5 or 6 teams by the sound of it

    Still only a finals TV filler replacing the old NYC pre finals games with only 4 teams

    With Easts and the Warriors who had pulled out at outbreak of covid

    Wonder who replaces them ?

    the Roosters and Warriors did not pull out, they simply made the point to the NRL how much money they (and the other 2 club) were losing each season and wanted the grant increased.
    It was misreported (there is a surprise for you) and the inaugural 4 teams will once again take part this year

    And were not invited to play

    Souths and Cronulla did not say the same thing.
    They said they would not be putting any of their own money into it. Also the Souths proposal was so amateurish that even if they had offered to pay $1m they still would have been laughed out of the process as they were.

    Anyway thats enough lets celebrate that they are running the comp again

    Also noting that another stand alone Womens origin after the season. That's going to one cracker of a-game with a full WNRL season lead in. Friday night game. Hopefully we have full crowds back by then.

    I hope they run an U18s SOO along side the womens too this year.

    Also Roosters announce they have signed Jamie Feeney as their WNRL coach, smart move I think

    I am looking forward to seeing the squads.
    The NRL has almost stuffed up majorly as they want to put the girls in a bubble but the players can't afford it. These players have been playing outsidea bubble for months now and the NRL wants to prevent them from working. They really are moronic sometimes
