Although Vlandys still gives the impression he has Mafia connections, pulling the Storm out of Victoria when they did was smart. The sheer demographics of the AFL competion makes things very complicated.

Agree. The afl moving the eagles and freo and port Adelaide and Adelaide was a massive mistake. 
should have done the exact opposite. 
 

PV is a smart guy.  Great for nrl.

Yeah basically the talk down here now is that everyone thinks the 2020 season is a joke and they should just give up.

Of course some will change their minds if their team actually wins the whole comp

It must be fun preparing to play a team, and then 4 days out from the game told you are playing a different team. No idea how they are going to manage the quarantine periods to get out of Vic. Maybe run 3 x conferences (Vic, Western, Qld/NSW) and have a lay weekend where teams can serve their quarantine after a reshuffle. Play 4 games, shuffle, play 4 games, shuffle, etc.

they should move half to Brisbane and the other half to WA.

Until those places have outbreaks and then reassess

Good to see that the rules for social distancing has had no impact on crowd numbers at NRL games.

Gees who would want to be a NRL ref.  Copping from the commentators, players and fans all game and then on Monday your boss publicly lays into you as well.

Graham Annesley concedes Manly Sea Eagles were denied penalty

From memory he's done a "the refs got it wrong" presser every week since the comp restarted.

Reckon he should just STFU and show some support his whistle blowers.

The Broncos visited an orphanage in Brisbane today. “It’s heartbreaking to see their sad little faces with no hope” said Johnny, age 6.

Latrell Mitchell could have a few weeks to think about the value of running in swinging. I really don't know how he didn't get a sinbin for what he did.

Based on recent charges, If he doesn't get at least Grade 3 then the Match review committee should just be disbanded.  And then at  another 1-2 weeks for the high shot.

Mitchell is a protected species and a prodigious talent playing out of position. Bennett always has one player that he turns into a massive sook (Darius).
