I think I have said it last year, but we are on a hiding to nothing. Not just with the positional changes either.

ANZAC Day... Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, right?
A national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served"

So why is this game played so late in NZ time with League Fans, and forget potential League Fans, in NZ having to wait until 10pm to watch this game!
I know my old man will not be watching this late... ANZAC spirit?
 
Good payout if we win by +13. 😂😂😂😂😂😂

Probably not even worth my bookie cash money tho to be fair. But an all or nothing play with the lot could pay dividends if the Storm don't show up.

It’s always irritated me the late kick off time. Especially as the Roosters v Dragons will be over by 8pm. Do we really need almost 2 hours before the next game to kick off. There is only so much Warriors bashing the commentators can do in a pre match before it becomes boring!
 
I'm as one-eyed a fan as the rest of you. I'll always leave room for the possibility that we produce a miracle performance against the odds.

But even I struggle to see how we're going to get out of this one. And probably with the millstone of a heavy points defeat knackering our for-and-against for the rest of the year.
 
I guess we fall under the same rule as the Roosters/Dragons game today, which is always held in Sydney and regarded as a Roosters home game and the Bulldogs/Rabbitohs game on Good Friday being a Rabbitohs home game. So I don't have a problem with it being over in Melbourne, but you would think that, being a holiday, the NRL would schedule a 2PM kick-off and 4PM kick-off at least every so often. I guess they're freaked out about going up against the traditional AFL game between Collingwood and Essendon....

Did my usual bet place on the Warriors when I'm not that confident - Head to Head. Suffice to say TAB winnings are not my primary source of income.

In the ANZAC spirit, can Cooper Cronk come help out his Kiwi cobbers? Chanel Harris-Tavita wouldn't mind a game with his Aussie mates at the Roosters, I'm sure!
