    * Each team plays every team in the other Pool twice
    * Teams that are in the same pool play each other once, with the exception of the teams that are linked together

    So Knights will play all teams in Pool A twice. Which means this can solve where games will be next year for Pool A.

    Knights finally play the Panthers in PENRITH.

    Its been almost two years. We will also play the Titans twice.

    The teams in our pool we will play once. Not sure where though.

    But we will play the Raiders twice as well?

    Its good we play panthers twice in a year its been ages. It really annoys me because when we play them once they don't take turns at venues. Like the last few at EAS but b4 that there was heaps and penrith which i hate because i love watching them play my sister s team

    We would only play the Raiders once.

    If teams are in our pool, we only play them ONCE.

    I think we play ONE team in our group twice. this year the Storm were in our group and they were the team we played twice so it should be the same again.

    I reckon we should pick teams out of a hat or something. It would be much better.

    It all depends on how we went in 2007 pretty much too.

    the groups and groups with in the groups are decided on the ladder. This year we came 15th so we play the 14th placed raiders twice. Last year we finished 4th so we played the 1st placed storm twice.

    So if a good team has a **** year ie Penrith, they sort of have an advantage the next year?

    The NRL would probably say it is leading to more competitive matches. Plus it is a reason to have a couple of the top teams having another big match-up.

    We'll be playing the Warriors in NZ again, not sure if I can be bothered going after this year haha.
