General 2022 Schedule

There's a huge amount of travel for the squad to deal with after Round 14. We'll need plenty of points in the bank as it's certainly not a given that Mt Smart will immediately become a fortress considering most of the squad have never played a home match there
 
Not too sure where to put this but this is the current list of players who are anti-vaxed at this point.

The Raiders look to be in a bind, given there's 3 players of theirs on that list.

Losing any player would be a blow, but if the horse won't drink...
 
So currently:

14th Newcastle - we play once in the season
16th Bulldogs - we play once in the season

🙁

1st Panthers - we play twice this season
2nd Storm - we play twice this season

🤦‍♂️

We’re ripped off with the draw! Admittedly the draws done before the seasons form is established but statistically this draw is going to cost us a game… it could be the difference between 8th and 10th.

Now mysteriously last year:
16th: Bulldogs - we played only once
1st: Storm - we played twice

Now even more mysteriously in 2020:
15th: Bulldogs - we played once
16th: Broncos - we played once
1st: Panther - we play twice

🤔

3 years in a row, the Bulldogs (a certain 2 points) we play once!
 
So currently:

14th Newcastle - we play once in the season
Reigning 7th placed when the draw was established
Now mysteriously last year:
16th: Bulldogs - we played only once
1st: Storm - we played twice
We also played the defending Wooden Spooners, Brisbane, twice as well as had 2 games vs the 14th placed 2020 side, the Cowboys.
Now even more mysteriously in 2020:
15th: Bulldogs - we played once
16th: Broncos - we played once
1st: Panther - we play twice
Broncos were a playoff team in 2019 & the Panthers were 10th.


Surely we get the Doggies twice next year once they've finally assembled a strong roster 🤣
Last year our draw was the softest out of everyone bar the Titans. This year we have exactly half our games against the teams who missed the playoffs in 2021 & also get to play the 8th placed team twice

The Bulldogs are hiding from us…

And I’m prepared to let the premiers skip playing us twice for a change.
