This is a media decision leading up to season kick off !

It looks like the draw will be released tomorrow. Can’t wait to start planning my year out.
:rofl::rofl::rofl:

First 6 rounds have been leaked for Penrith, with dates and venues firm for the first 4.

The Bathurst game will be on Saturday 26th March at 3pm at Carrington Park.

Looks like I’ll be in Bathurst for my Birthday next year.

Mostly happy with the draw, only thing I don’t like is the teams we play in Weeks 1 & 2 we don’t play again. Personally I think the games against teams you only play once should all be mid-season.

Here is a breakdown of the time slots. Sadly not many Saturday 7:30 matches, but for those a fan of Friday Night Football will be happy with 10 matches (7 Home & 3 Away) being played on Friday Nights.

The majority of hame games are on Thursday and Friday (9 from 11). Only 3 games on the weekends (one is at Bathurst).

Thoughts?

Pre covid I was not a fan of Thursday or Friday games, but now working from home it’s ok.

I much rather night games in the warmer months and daytime in winter.

The lack of Saturday and Sunday afternoon games is a disgrace In my opinion.

I will still be there though, my kids are older now so can go to 7:30 games.

I don’t go to games nor do I subscribe to pay TV so, next season I will be able to watch the Panthers 11 times during the regular season and 3 times in the finals.

So, the NRL, in its infinite wisdom, awards only 11 free-to-air games to the defending premiers. Pre-season hasn’t even started, and already my Penrith persecution complex is activated.

Looking further ahead, I wonder what the 2020 bye system will be like. We should never forget the last time that a bye system was instigated. At that time the conventional wisdom was that the team that had just enjoyed a bye would be at an advantage because of the week off. That shouldn’t be a problem, should it, if the allocation was balanced. But it wasn’t. Every team played a bye-freshened team ONCE - except Penrith. We played the bye-freshened team THIRTEEN times. I think that the appropriate advice to a Penrith fan was to lay on your back and think of England.
