For ‘magic round’ believe it or not the Broncos game (vs Manly) is an AWAY game for them!!! So they get that game on their home ground + their regular 12 home games ALL at Suncorp. Give them Ashley Klein each week and they are home & hosed for the semis

One of the worst draws I have seen in recent memory. Not a single home game on Saturday, the day where we pull the best crowds.

I dread to see the lack of traffic flowing to the leagues club post game. What a disaster.

Agree Steve, absolutely terrible scheduling. Too many Fri nights, including 6pm starts!!

I recall a few years ago the NRL asked clubs for their preferred timeslots. Penrith advised them Sat 7:30 & Sun afternoon. The draw came out with only one home game in each of the preferred slots and a bunch of 5:30 Sat, 2pm Sun and Fri night - thanks for nothing NRL.

The silence from the club mouthpiece is deafening on this. Perhaps small crowds will justify more and more games away from Penrith, including I guess the new Parra stadium.

I see the boss of Broncos trumpeting the draw those pricks have been gifted. Thu & Fri night regulars, 12 home games plus a game at Suncorp as the away team.

We have bought our season tickets, but the draw does no favours for us to see our team play.

… there’s been no value in season tickets for some years what with Thursday & Monday night football. A working week and school limits what the kittens are allowed round this household… :unamused:

Gotta say, from a selfish perspective, I love the draw but that is because I finish at 12 on Fridays, love a Super Saturday BBQ with mates, Sunday’s are also good for me.

Completely understand from a crowd perspective though, I go to most games regardless.

I, like a lot of others, find Thursday and 6pm Friday games (almost) impossible to get to due to work.
This wa something the club (Gould) made a lot of noise about in the past, but strangely the club is now silent. No home Saturday games (day or night), what a joke!

That first game in March on the Sunday arvo should be stinking hot, hope we learn from mistakes of the past and wear the white strip - doesn’t help the fans though.

Playing a trial against parra then two weeks later the season opener? Could be a risky move.

Does the club get a say on the Bathurst game? Seems to me if you wanted to maximise home ground advantage a 7:30 game mid winter against the cows would suffice. That said unlikely to get many Storm fans to the game.

Seems like the draw gets set up firstly on what the Broncos want, then TV, and the fans can get stuffed… or should I just put my tinfoil hat back on lol

thanks for the work in posting the draw and data re days etc…great work

On the draw i joked on another thread what if we are o from 7 without having seen the draw and our first 7 rounds is full of risk…with only 3 home games in our first 7

Eels first up are always an each way bet and they will be motivated to get off to a good start to repair the damage of this year but is at home
Knights away will be tough
Storm in Bathurst is no give me
Tigers at home and boy will they be motivated against their old coach
Titans away then Sharks away before we meet Souths at home.

No easy games in that 7

I disagree SBF - the only reason you wouldn’t expect a minimum 4 wins from those 7 is if you had no “Grand” plans. Our squad and so called troubles behind us should result in some pretty good performances early. I don’t want to think about the alternatives from your potential results.

Given that Sunday is the only day that I’m guaranteed to have off (although I’m good at getting RDOs in game days) any timeslots on Thursday, Friday & Saturday can be a challenge for me.

Luckily the Bathurst game is while I’m on holidays, so I will be able to get there for once. Does anyone know when the Grandstand tickets for Bathurst go on sale?

… looking at trial dates, do you think it’s wise to play a Parra trial
2 weeks before we meet them again in the Premiership proper ???
I reckon we should keep our powder dry, so to speak.

As long as we beat those featherdick a every Game, I’d be happy to play 10 times lol - but if we are a chance of losing, don’t play em at all.


UPDATE: Change to the 2019 Preseason. Rooster have pulled out of the clash at Panthers Stadium. The Panthers will instead play South Sydney at Redfern Oval.

Why did the Roosters chicken out?

Sadly, no mention was made on why it was cancelled.

I am only speculating but it might have to do with the Roosters preparations for the WCC perhaps.
