    Looks like a bit of a tough draw.

    In the first 10 weeks of the new draw we play last years top 8 teams 7 times. Melbourne twice overall.

    Our run home is a bit kinder but it's going to be a tough 10 weeks.

    Should give us a good understanding on where the team is at.

    More importantly Scaleybugs are the teams we play twice. Not too bad methinks:-


    Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, Melbourne Storm, North Queensland Cowboys, New Zealand Warriors, Wests Tigers

    ive only just properly looked at the draw. Geez it’s going to be a tough grind in coming 6-8 rounds. If we can consistently dig deep like vs Panthers we should always have a chance. But I think Eels, Eagles, Storm and Raiders are all looking pretty bloody good.

    It's going to be a tough run, but it will give us a good understanding of where we are at compared to other teams who fancy themselves in contention.

    If we can continue the defensive grit we showed against Panthers, we should keep ourselves in most of those games and give ourselves a shot.

    If we keep the effort to and improve, we could come home with a wet sail too

    Three wins out of next five would be a great achievement. I think last week gives us a real understanding where we are at, which is a great place. I also think the draw matters. It’s not to be feared, but certainly mindful of the sustained level of performance that will be required.

    We always seem to aim up against Canberra. Even in 2016 when we were trash and they came 2nd we got a draw up here and just got beaten down there.

    26 - 12 to the Knights and every team we play twice will be soiling themselves after the first time we play them .

    Bit hopeful with the State Government announcing some admittance to games from next week, catered areas only to include corporate boxes and sponsors, we might be able to get some real home games, just like the Donkeys, Cowgirls, Parra, Wests, Melbourne.

    Yes, us and Canberra. I think the Knights would be happy to bear the additional cleaning costs.

    Probably costs less to clean than to travel

    What’s our stadiums corporate capacity like? I went a few times to the outdoor boxes in like 2008-2011 seasons. Not sure if they’d be included? Would be amazing to at least open the door for some fans to come in.

    The new stand at our stadium is currently out of service because they decided to use this time to strip out all the flammable cladding and replace it, so over half our corporate boxes are out of commission.
    Once they get that sorted, I think they'd be able to put in some dividers to keep groups separated and might get as many as 2000 into all the different boxes and bars they have.
