    I think so it's a lead up game to the NRL match. Their is no NRL match happening in New Zealand so it would be pointless to have it over there because noone would come along.

    Does seem strange...NYC and NSW Cup is both Knights vs Warriors with Warriors coming 1st in both comps. Ud think they would get a decent crowd considering NSW Cup is playn in NZ anyway

    Korbin Sims could play.
    I'd drop Ireland - we need 3 forwards on the bench.

    They just match it up as well as they can so teams play in front of their own fans.

    It's a bit lame, because they've had 1vs 8 and 2 vs 7 already, the higher placed teams know they won't get knocked out now!

    Yep very harsh! Would be better just to play them in the correct order, imo.

    We were absolutely man handled. Finished up with 65 missed tackles.

    Just jersey grabbed the whole game. NZ are a big and fast team, they will go all the way.

    Good finish to the regular season by the NYC boys though, many of which will still be there next season.

    Some of the attempted tackles that led to Warriors tries ... hmm. Not good.

    It looked like men against boys. But don't let it overshadow the year, they did great to make the finals for the first time, and win six of their last eight games.
