  • I am struggling to see the purpose and value of ‘magic’” round?

    this whole round makes no sense at all?
    define magic?
    is the definition of magic taking home games away from Sydney members and expecting them to be appeased?


    this whole round stinks
    its like an NRL payback to Suncorp

    Same JT. I spent the weekend up there and it was a great vibe all the way through. Would definitely go again.

    It's a great event for footy fans, and I found it enjoyable to watch some games of footy without stressing about it. I already stressed enough during the last 20 minutes of our game on the Sunday.

    Most supporters went to all games, even if their team played on the Friday night. Especially the Broncos fans who were still out there in force on the Sunday, having attended all 3 games on the Saturday.

    The ground looked fine to me on Sunday - most of the injuries that occurred were contact injuries that would have happened on any ground. And there is no rain forecast in Qld for this week so it should be fine for Friday night.

    Assuming they like their families.

    I hope the field is up to scratch for this Friday's game after such heavy traffic...

    Fair point. Maybe it could be a home game, but a Broncos season ticket shouldn't include Magic Round. But whatever - not for the first time, the Broncos are getting an unfair advantage.

    I didn't go, but am more a fan of the idea now than last week.

    They probably need to tweak a few things, like making sure the Broncos game is a designated home game (why should they get more home games than everyone else in the comp?); and playing it over 3 days - 2 on Fri, 3 on Sat, 3 on Sun.

    I am sure the number Orthopedic surgeons who have also received a bump in consultancy fees this week would also be pleased : P

    He is saving that for the semis, along with sawing a Burgess in half, only to have another one appear in his image from the bench.

    Oh ok. Not much rehab time or bumps/bruises management then.

    Let’s not make an excuse that the travel we have to do is unfair because teams outside of NSW have to do it nearly every second week. Without Cords, Jake and probably Toups we still have good backup players to beat the broncos. If Halls injury has healed, maybe have him as the 17th man and IF needed then bring him on.

    And if Cords isn’t playing, who will be captain? Cronk? And if Cronk wishes not to be captain I would like to see Keary and Jared shared the captaincy. I would like to see Jared being inspired as being given the co captaincy.

    If the game would have been held in Sydney it would have been stuck on a cold Saturday night and played with a very small crowd because the raiders attract little interest in Sydney AND I know many fans who aren’t into either teams who are going to this game plus you have fans of the cows and Souths and it will be a good atmosphere to play on a nice sunny Sunday afternoon.

    As for missing a home game then how about the Adelaide game against the Storm? That game should have been scheduled at our new fortress the SCG. That decision may cost us more because other teams find it hard to adjust to the field...

    And as for a short turnaround against the Broncos...well that will test our mental strength to overcome that much like we had to overcome playing the grand final with a busted Cronk. If that taught us anything, it will be that we can overcome those kind of adversities. Roosters should take the points on both games.
    The contract with the SA government included this year. Joe Kelly said we have a big announcement coming up about game scheduling.
    Injuries, travel, rehabilitation, etc. does catch up.
