  1. Though the business ambition of Peter V’landys is obvious I don’t sense a great deal of excitement for this NRL venture, just that it’s a potential waste of money, but the NRL does have a lot of money at the moment. Just as a reminder of how the NRL’s economic circumstances can change, not that long ago we read articles that said: ”The NRL will hand out a combined $7 million in COVID-19 relief packages to clubs to make up for lost revenue through a lack of crowds and home games.” so the reported $700 million in NRL revenue in 2023 is not bad at all.

  2. This round is effectively a split round going over two weeks to allow the teams playing in the US to recover for Round 2.

    Given that only 2 clubs play regular season matches at Accor Stadium (and one of those is Canterbury-Bankstown that has another home ground that they can use), the draw can be shuffled around to accommodate any double bookings. Allianz Stadium has limited availability for concerts due to noise restrictions, so that would be why Accor Stadium will be used more frequently.

    The bigger question is why the NRL has only allowed one game of the double header to air on free to air?

  3. I am wondering why they kick nrl off at LV instead of Accor Stadium. I may think that it has to do with the unavailablity of Accor Stadium in the first 3 weeks due to concerts. I personally think the NRL is too subservient to Frontier Touring following the swift concert. I wonder when Accor Stadium will be available for NRL games this year?
