  1. Wait… the Storm are playing Leeds in Melb on February 16, then fly to NZ to play the Warriors the next day? Then play the Cowboys the following week? Don’t think that’s quite right.

  2. The Eels traditionally play a trial match against the Panthers every year. Does anyone know why this game has been scrapped?

  3. Aron woods thinks he’s hard 😂😂😂 did ya see him during pre season interview 😂 keep wearing that hair band girl friend

  4. I hate trials , just get straight into NRL matches , to many injuries , i know it’s an important pre season hit out , but, I’d rather not have em.

    • Well those same injuries can happen anytime. Does it matter if you get 2 weeks before the season begins or 2 weeks after the season begins. If you are going to get injured, you are going to get injured. It’s not more likely pre-season.
