This year the NRC is going to overlap with the Rugby World Cup so I wonder how much playtime the NRC will get on Fox.
I'm still in favour of full home-and-away for the Shute Shield even if that means starting the season earlier and / or moving the start of the NRC back.
The NRC could possibly be played as double headers at night or even if it can't I don't see any problems with it starting later.
I'm not sure how much support NRC gets in NSW - its lost me.
Two of the Strongest clubs in recent years Marlins and Rats - and were does their NRC team call home?
Kudos to Pulver, not only did he acuse SS clubs of pissing money up against the wall, he picked their pockets on the way through.You're probably right Dave, it's been a while since it all happened. The farsighted vision of the 4 northen clubs owning and running the Northern Rays has long since disappeared. A pity.
Uni v woods in MudgeeGames for today:
Norths v Manly at NSO
Rats v Gordon at Rat Park
Uni v Woodies at Uni
Wests v WSTB at Western Stadium (tonight)
Randwick def Easts 23-15 on Thursday
Manly will need to improve to beat Norths - on current form Norths should win
Rats to beat Gordon - Rat Park in a howling southerly isn't pleasant and nobody can boo a turncoat likes Rats fans
Uni too good for the Woods
Wests to beat the struggling WSTB
I did my best to support the NRC but each year they cancelled the team I was a member of... I don’t think there were any games in Sydney last year - if there was they passed me byThe NRC club which we all started off supporting (and each club put in $20,000 IIRC), has left us. No idea where they play or who plays for them these days.
