Hard to know what to make of this draw considering all we have bought is a hooker and let go of plenty

It was clear this year the gap between the Top 4 and the rest was huge and Raiders were the biggest improvers

we play twice major improvers in Eels,Eagles,Raiders twice with Broncos and Sharks somewhat of unknowns
Ones we face once Roosters and Storm will be there or thereabouts with Cowboys i believe the potential biggest improvers for next year and expect some upside to Bulldogs…

A long way before a ball is kicked but we need everything to go right this off season.

No one can tell me that draw creates a ‘fair’ competition. If we make the 8 / 4, it will be purely because of the draw, we only play 3 of last years top 4 once!

I’m very happy with it, but it’s not a fair comp.

I like the Sunday games, the only day I can’t be called into work. Wish we had them every week though.

I am happy we get a few Saturday Night games this year, but personally I am not a fan of Sunday football.

Nothing better than a beautiful winters day bathed in sunshine drinking that liquid amber bliss watching the mighty Panthers carve up………ON A SUNDAY ha ha haaaa

Why don’t you like Sunday’s Steve…is that family day, can’t be we are your family when the footy is on lol

It’s not a family day thing. For me it like a mental blank day. I just unwind from the week and get ready for Monday on Sundays.

Footy can get me feeling on edge a bit so a Friday or Saturday night works for me. I’m also a Winter guy so I like sitting out there on a freezing Penrith night.
