Wow, after Cardiff, my head hurts. In Birmingham now, colloquially known as 'The Second City'. The best Indian restaurants in all of the UK are here and I'm off to Punjabi Rasoi which is supposed to be the best curry house of the lot.
I received an email yesterday from a GM that was originally sent from the comp manager.
2016 Shute Shield kicks off weekend of March 19. Because of Channel 7's Olympic broadcast commitments next year there will be no allocated wet weather weekends. 18 straight round from March 19, playing through both Easter and June long weekends. Round 1 of finals will be July 23 with Grand Final August 6.
I don't believe the draw itself is done yet, however the competition dates are locked in. We're finishing earlier every year.
Perhaps this is getting us ready to go back to 22 rounds in 2017 with a later start to the NRC mooted for 2017.
Really hope you're right about the return to 22 rounds.
The current setup is too unfair.
